Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Ha, wow I sure chose a brilliant username didn't I? I only lived in
NJ for 1.5 years, before the Shore and the Real Housewives preceded
Kevin Smith movies on the Jersey rep. Fist pumping...no sir I don't
I'm the creative type working full-time in animation/video and
juggling a few projects on the side. I lived in NY and Seattle most
of my life. The East coast gave me a cold blooded sense of humor,
while the Northwest taught me how to appreciate
alternative/independent music and culture. I've been in San
Francisco since 2009 and minus the wealth gap, it's great to be
Otherwise I have some published comedy writing, and am a cartoonist
with a weekly satirical webcomic at the moment. I may return to
live comedy and have been in my share of bands over the years, but
believe it or not my feet are on the ground about it all. Being
mixed race, from an artist dad and a Japanese countryside mom
definitely helps with my angle there.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Seinfeld like conversation, finding shoegazey chords on guitar,
running from the fat kid I once was (or jogging), interviews, witty
status updates, this one dance move where it looks like I'm doing
the moonwalk sideways.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The half Asian eyes, the own personal style, the never taking
myself too seriously
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: History and non-fiction for some time now, but I wouldn't
call myself a bookworm. Lately it's been more in the economic
landscape, because I think money should work for people and not the
other way around. I keep the graphic novels in rotation.
Movies & Shows: Comedy, documentaries, foreign films, classics
and indie flicks (<3 The Roxie). Another Big Lebowski and How I
Met Your Mother fan here. Freaks and Geeks should've had a longer
run, and British sitcoms are also up there on my list. IT Crowd
might be my favorite show ever.
Music: Big music fan and I check for good live shows pretty
regularly. I've been going back to dream pop a lot but mostly indie
rock, new wave, jazz and underground hip hop. Some recent bands I
like are Twin Shadow, Best Coast and Washed Out. Some old ones are
The Ocean Blue, Guided By Voices and Django Reinhardt.
PODCASTS, love them! Judge John Hodgman, WTF w/ Marc Maron,
Nerdist, Comedy Bang Bang, and some NPR and This American Life: all
great to listen to while sketching and inking the webcomic.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Awesome people, comedy, guitar breaks, escaping the urban
landscape, diversity, garlic
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Culture, East and West Coast comparisons, family, saying a lot with
a little in a funny way, or as Charlie Brown once said: "Sometimes
I lie awake at night, and I ask, 'Where have I gone wrong?' then a
voice says to me, 'This is going to take more than one night.'"
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
With friends, at a gallery opening, concert, having a pint,
watching something on Netflix or the Cinecave at Lost Weekend
Video, or getting out of the city and chillin in the presence of
