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/indie/underground music and culture. I've been in San
Francisco since 2009 and minus seeing it lose some character to
condos lately, it's great to be here.
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, so
I'm pretty dedicated to my creative output but can't not go out at
least twice a week. Being mixed race from an artist dad and a
Japanese countryside mom, who had us grow up in then leave a pretty
extreme religious group definitely helped give me perspective
there. As a result I'm pretty big on non-fiction, realism, and
documentaries, lol and am a sucker for good satire.
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,
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). My Netflix list includes
Archer, Parks and Rec, Bob's Burgers, and a documentary on Howard
Zinn to name a few. 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
Sonic Youth, Guided By Voices and Django Reinhardt.
PODCASTS, love them! Judge John Hodgman, WTF w/ Marc Maron,
Nerdist, 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.
Besides my kin - fearless conversation, writing, humor, visits to
and from my dear NYC friends, 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 an art 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
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
