My self-summary
What I often do: Entertain; Cook; Movies; Conversation; Work out; Massage; Compose songs.

My playlist right now: Fleetwood Mac; Die Walküre; the Moth; This American Life

Just watched | Am watching: Birdman; Game of Thrones

Just cooked: Slow cooked Chicken Tacos

Just ate at: Pizzeria Libretto

I'm a mix of Chinese and English. Definitely hairy from the English side.

My idea of perfect happiness: Cooking dinner for friends, then gathering around the piano for a good sing with wine in our hands.

Sorting hat: House Slytherin (I regret to admit it, but that's likely where I would have been put despite mud-blood status.)

What restores my soul and makes me think: Opera; Sondheim; Theatre; Classical Music; and Dance. But I am pretty discerning so not all of it is always wonderful.

My most prized possession: the watch my father left me, that my grandparents gave him

My greatest fear: loss of hope

The trait I most deplore in myself: being too judgmental and occasionally too lazy. I have also been told that I over think things. Need to be more go with the flow than planned out.

The trait I most deplore in others: lack of drive, procrastination, excessive texting, lack of directness or honesty

My greatest extravagance: generosity to friends or my clothes (particular weakness for Etro)

My favourite Journey: going to Bali

Most overrated virtue: chastity

Greatest regret: not remembering all the stories my grandparents told me

What I would change about myself: I need to learn to go with the flow - I plan and strategize too much. Being prepared is a good thing, but I need to be more chill.

Favourite pastime: Making music - I wish I were better at it

My motto: Ne incautus futuri .

Looking for: A deeper connection with someone who is a regular guy. Someone who's funny, kind, thoughtful, who can match wits with me, who has dreams and hopes, and who can be my partner in crime, my better half, the object of my affection. Someone who loves music, and the arts and hungers for beauty and grace. Someone who will look me in the eye, see into my flawed soul, and still love me. Someone who makes me a better person.

Likes: kindness, helpfulness, reliability, honesty, openness, and eyes into which I can stare forever. An open heart, a good conversationalist, a curious mind. Someone who has seen a little of the world or hungers for it. Self-awareness and a little erudition is helpful. A positive outlook. Openness to irreverent and inappropriate humour (at the appropriate time) - especially since I am the same.

Not too young. Not too old.
Not too hot. Not too cold.
Not too hard. Not too soft.

(Do I sound like Goldilocks?)

Dislikes: smoking, drugs, infrequent washing. Ignorance. Shirking of culpability. Vegetarians or picky eaters. Long hair on men, excessive piercings or Tats. 😣

I'm a typical Aries - not that I follow that too much - but I do fit the description!

HIV negative as of Feb, 2015
What I’m doing with my life
I work for a major Financial Institution. I enjoy my job very much, but I'm a creative and expressive type in a business environment. Happy to be one of the anomalies. Happy to report that I always feel welcome, and more than that, valued.

My passions are artistic in nature. Music, performing arts, writing.
I’m really good at
Cooking. Massages. Being supportive. Being up front (sometimes too up front)
The first things people usually notice about me
I'd like to believe they would first notice that I'm a bright, high energy person who pays attention to personal style.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: A Death in the Family; The Grapes of Wrath; The Sound and the Fury; Flowers for Algernon; The Road.

Movies: Amadeus; The Color Purple; Much Ado About Nothing (1993 and 2012); The Lion in Winter

Sunday in the Park with George; Sweeney Todd; A Little Night Music
Six things I could never do without
The company of my talented and beautiful friends; my piano; music notation software; good food; good music; tickets to the opera, theatre, ballet, concerts.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
When I'm next going to see or get together with my friends and what I'm going to cook them.

What music to work with next. How to make it better.

Living a richer and more meaningful existence.
On a typical Friday night I am
At the gym, and then chilling at home and gathering my strength for Saturday night get togethers and entertainment.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
At the end of the day I believe in God, and know that He watches over me and is concerned for my well-being.
You should message me if
You're unafraid of a passionate, compassionate, sometimes horribly inappropriate person who tries to find what is funny about the human condition, and looks for self-knowledge In a myriad of situations.
The two of us
