My self-summary
After three years of courtship, I have fallen in love with DC…

...and no I don't drive a BMW.
What I’m doing with my life
Grrrrrr! Such a DC question…

For work:
1. Changing the finance world.
2. Improving your travel experience.

For fun:
1. Building a product based startup
2. Martial arts - Muay Thai mainly, some Jiujitsu, Jeet Kune Do, Eskrima/Kali/Silat.

Life is busy these days, but I do my best to keep my priorities in check…and make time for the things that matter most.
I’m really good at
understanding your perspective…gauging people's "currencies"…staying calm in crisis situations…listening, giving advice if solicited…being aware of my weaknesses and my strengths…
and picking restaurants!
The first things people usually notice about me
Depending on the day of the week/time of day…ear rings?

All kinds...I love trying different cuisines depending on the people I am out with. Favorite foods otherwise: Japanese, Ethiopian, Thai, Vietnamese, Korean…I acquire tastes for the right foods…mind over body!

Indulgent - Cocktails
The six things I could never do without
1. Learnings from failures/mistakes
2. Moral compass from my sisters and life perspective from my parents
3. Diversity - cultural, ideatic and culinary
4. A kitchen and fresh ingredients to cook with
5. Martial arts
6. Good bartenders
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The six things listed above :O)
On a typical Friday night I am
Catching up with friends, exploring DC - escaping productivity in the traditional sense of the word.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I had chocolate for breakfast today...
