I enjoy outdoor activities. As time goes by, me and my friends have been keeping the tradition of annual camping trips to eastern Washington, annual skiing trips to Whistler, and not to mention regular weekend hikes and cycling trips. I was a competitive runner when I was young, and now I only compete with myself with the helps of GPS watches. Run Mt. Si in 60 minutes anyone?
I also enjoy salsa dancing and photography. I was in a Salsa dance troupe for a short time. As far as photography goes, it’s one of my favorite hobbies. With a camera, any moment can be memorable. I have two sites to post pictures: http://yiphoto.com and http://yichenphoto.com. One of the most fulfilling things in my life is traveling to see friends and taking pictures of us hanging out.
Life is not all about hobbies, though, and I love to work. I am driven, and self-motivated, and have a keen understanding of business. What's more, I am responsible with my money and investments.
One friend told me that I have the wisdom and understanding of a 45 year-old with the energy of a 6 year-old. Take this as you will, but I thought it meant I am self-controlled and mature at the same time as being extremely fun and enjoyable to be around.
Most of all, I am a genuine guy, who is sincere, and enjoys life. The most important thing about me is that I care for my family and friends. Everything I do is because I want to be kind to those around me. I trust these words shed a little light on my character, the person who I am. But, like my friend said, words cannot not take the place of experiences.
If you find me interesting, let's get in touch. I prefer getting to know people in person, maybe a coffee or tea together?
