And now for the serious stuff:
You can take me anywhere; I get along with artists, nerds, stoners, straight-shooters, and high-powered executives.
I've gone to great (some might say absurd :) lengths for significant others, and would gladly do so again.
You won't lose me to an insane work schedule; I set my own hours. In fact, unless you're unemployed, I bet my schedule is more flexible than yours...
I believe our bodies are a gift to one another and keep mine in good shape.
Work-wise I'm co-founder of a startup in Mountain View - we make strategy games. Before that I designed visualizations for various space missions.
I'm proud, and fortunate, to spend time on pursuits I'm passionate about and that hopefully contribute in some way to human progress. (OK, gaming is a bit of a detour, but my long-term plan is to get back into educational media). I'm definitely more interested in being a "producer" than a "consumer." I treasure this as a core value, so I hope it resonates with you!
My Chinese comes from living in Taiwan for two and a half years. I still visit often; it's almost my second home.
True story, ask me about it.

!! ALERT !! - I am not a foodie! I love cooking and will never refuse a quality meal - or hey, even a non-quality meal. But I think I buck the Bay Area trend when it comes to how I prioritize dining-out experiences relative to other things. For me it's about who I'm with, not what's on the table.
