a short list of things that i'm into. I love early hip-hop, the
outdoors, small spaces, power tools, riding bikes, contemporary
art, looking at pictures, reading, adventure, drafting tools,
furniture, mountains, and fast moving water too.
What I’m doing with my life
Doing work that I love, but still trying to stay balanced with
I’m really good at
seeing potential, self-teaching, repairing broken things, analyzing
Things I'm not good at:
Planning, being on time, email, and other things I deem
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Roald Dahl was my absolute favorite growing up. I tried reading
some of his adult books, not quite as charming. Vonnegut is a hero
of mine, though I read his biography and was a bit sad to hear his
real life was far from what I imagined. I keep hoping that Salinger
has a body of work that will get released. Dave Eggars is another
literary guy i like a lot. I love McSweeny's and reading internet
tendencies on the subway.
As far as movies Let The Right One In, Life Aquatic, Le Mépris, and
to be honest I thought Kanye's short film Runaway was amazing from
the cinematography to the styling, to the choreography, the
coloring, all well done. PT Anderson is one of my absolute
favorites. I was just in a bar playing There Will Be Blood and
forgot how pretty that movie was.
So music wise J Dilla is a true love of mine. including all of his
endeavors Tribe Called Quest, Slum Village, etc. Along with that
soul music like Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Sam & Dave. I've
recently been getting into the Numero Group's stuff. I constantly
listen to music so after awhile I'll have to balance it out and
I'll put on the Jesus and Mary Chain or some Strokes or Velvet
Underground. Cody Chestnutt, Tv on the Radio, Beruit, Elliot Smith,
Arcade Fire, are other favorites.
Food is something that's becoming more important to me. I think
living in the city with all these options and styles makes you
realize what an art it is. And working around people who's lives
are dedicated to it has made me look at it differently. I'll eat
just about anything. I love spicy food. Cooking on the other hand
doesn't happen a whole lot in my kitchen. I think i'd have to move
elsewhere to really spend time honing my craft.
The six things I could never do without
New music, good food, cold winters with lots of snow, and of course
friends and family.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Some kind of adventure, skiing or moutain climbing or something,
but it's probably just because I live in the city. If I lived on a
mountain top I'm sure I'd dream about riding the subway. Jk
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i'm not at all asian despite my last name.
