I like to stay physically fit. I also do voluntary work at UCSF

I live in SSF, I work in San Jose and I go to grad school in the
East Bay. So I'm pretty flexible when it comes to coordinating a
date in terms of location. As busy of a schedule as that sounds, I
have a knack of making leeway in terms of making room for
Update - 4/30/2015: So, just to get this out of the way, I'm an
introvert & I'm not at all ashamed for it. However, it gets
exhausting when I try to explain myself. Therefore, here's a link
to shed some light on what introverts are (and what they are
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I love running, helping others and hanging out with my friends. I
used to be an amateur freelance photographer, but now I just take
photos for fun. My friends ARE my family and I don't know what I'd
do without them. I'm at that point in my life where I'm trying not
to take everything personal.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening. It sounds too good to be true, but it's true. One of my
main focuses when it comes to interaction with people is the
communication aspect of it all.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People who barely know me or just got to know make the assumption
that I'm this square guy. When I'm really not. I have a profanity
switch that I can flip on or off at the drop of a dime and my whole
shoulder is one big tattoo. A quote that best describes me is this:
find I'm full of surprises."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I'm definitely a Charles Bukowski fan. There are other writers and
poets like Hunter S. Thompson, Haruki Murakami, George Orwell,
Robert Frost, philosophy from Nietzsche, Kant and I relate to
Darwin but I don't totally agree with his ideas, I read a lot of
Theists vs. Atheists debates, and The Catcher in the Rye.
I enjoy practically ANY kind of music, and I mean ANY (except
Beatles, ask me why if you're curious - lol). I'll listen mostly to
alternative, to classical, ska, to rap, to mostly old school hip
hop, trip hop, rockabilly music, big band, classical, etc. etc.
etc. I don't dig gospel or some country (except for maybe Johnny
Cash). I love the Smiths.

"They get better."
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My friends/family
2. Good communication
3. My self-respect/dignity
5. My dog
6. Living in the moment
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend some time thinking about disabling my OkCupid account. I've
gotten my fair share of hits and misses to the point where it can
be emotionally and mentally draining.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I generally hit the town (San Francisco) to either watch a live
band at a local bar/club, watch a movie, play billiards with
friends, check out any local events, etc. etc.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you have any sort of an interest in hanging out and having a
By the way, I don't believe in the "you can tell within the first
5-minutes" or the "within the first few dates" approach regarding
chemistry or if we'd get along. I generally take my time getting to
know someone and I don't write people off after only 2-3 dates. I
think it's impossible to truly know if there's a spark based off of
such a brief stint of time. If I had that kind of approach in life,
I would have zero friends in life.
