I definitely mirror the stereotype of the career-oriented young professional, in part. For example, I check my work emails way too frequently. Similar to that joke about how easy it is to quit smoking, yes, I can put my phone down and stop thinking about work. I’ve done it thousands of times before.
Fortunately, there's more to me than work! I am a deeply driven guy that wants to reach the horizon. I maintain a very active lifestyle and split my activities up between the gym, yoga, running, rec-sports, and pick-up games of pretty much everything. I'm extremely passionate about the out-doors, and I feel perfectly at home in the middle of nature. I also have begun scratching my travel itch. Hawaii, Germany, and Pakistan are checked off. Hong Kong is coming up in July!
I value discipline, hard work, humility, and integrity. Although I recognize that perfection is untenable, I still aim high. My faith is important to me, but I balance that with rational thought. At my core, I believe that the world is a complicated place. There are few easy answers, and the best path to a principled set of moral beliefs comes from understanding multiple perspectives.
In a nutshell, I'm looking for someone that shares similar convictions, is adventurous and optimistic about life, and seeks each day to be a little bit better than the day before.
Movies: Action, Comedy, or Sci-Fi. I'm not picky, please just have a good plot!
Music: My musical interests are all over the place. What I listen to generally reflects my mood. I'll go with up-beat instrumentals, meditative tracks, rock, and sometimes even that emo stuff that normal people drop after high school.
Food: I used to be Paleo, but I missed my morning carbs too much. Most of my diet still consists of fruits, veggies, and proteins.
