I'm also very paradoxical in nature. I'm a Republican but am socially liberal. I love old fashions, movies, and music but I love new technologies and innovation. I may look conservative, but I am a definite risktaker. I'm extravagant with regards to material possessions, but I love to make sure that I get the best deal. I'm said to exhume a cool and laid back personality but I'm very meticulous and punctual with my work. I love big business, but I never want to work for a corporation; I want to own one or several. I have a huge ego, yet I'm humble to admit when someone is better than me and learn from that person so that I may outdo them in the future. I only sleep for 3 hours, but I have more energy than the average person who gets 8 hours of sleep. Even though everything about me may be orderly, I personally hate following the rules. I'm left handed, but I've never gotten into an accident because of it and nor do I believe that I'll die 7 years earlier than my right handed colleagues
I'm both a business owner and actor. I have my own business consulting company where I specialize in telecommunications.
I'm pursuing acting because I always knew I wanted to do something within the entertainment industry. I was planning on being an Entertainment Lawyer until I realized I prefer the performance side. I've also always been one of those people who has to use both sides of my brain. Acting is one of those things that demands that. It's also hard thus giving me a bigger reason for doing it. If I wanted easy, I would have been an accountant and be boring.
I've traveled around the world. Xanga.com/TheDouglas
Dressing better than you-I own more than 10 different suits, 20+ bow-ties, 5 different hats, and love men's fashion. I can also make something from a thrift shop look like some overpriced designer outfit. Some people have called me the Asian Chuck Bass, but does the actor who plays Chuck Bass really know how to dress in real life? I've also been compared to Barney Stinson, but I don't love women just for their bodies and I'm even pickier with regards to fashion than he is.
Growing a beard in 5 days and sideburns. Not too many Asian guys can do that.
Telling it like it is a la Simon Cowell.
Eyebrows-Like Jack Nicholson, Michael Keaton, Jason Sudeikis, to name a few, I go to sleep with the same eyebrows and wake up with the same eyebrows. They're naturally pointy and go upwards.
Sideburns-most Asians can't grow them.
I'm tall for an Asian.

Food: I'm probably the only Asian guy who doesn't like Chinese food. Well I don't completely hate it because i love chow mein and duck. I like all kinds of food, but I usually automatically steer towards the healthier choice. My Korean and Japanese restaurant bill, however, would make you think it's for four people but really just for me.
1. Iron/Steam press-With the exception of workout or camping clothes, I can't wear something that is not ironed or pressed.
2. Hair products or a cool hat- If there's something that I care most about myself, superficially, it would be my hair. My pomp has to be perfect or if I don't feel like working on my hair, I'll wear a cool hat. I think I added hats to my fashion ensemble because I would go to a mirror every 30 minutes to see if my pomp was in order.
3. Bow-tie and suspenders- Those are a fashion staple for me. I was born with a bow-tie and suspenders!
4. Ipod- I have every good Sinatra album and a lot of jazz, classical, and broadway musicals on it, but my biggest use of my Ipod has to be playing audiobooks. I drive a lot so I figure why not make it more productive by learning something new?
5. Schadenfreude- In a Nelson Muntz laugh "Ha-ha"
6. DVR- I run on the treadmill and watching tv while doing it makes it more fun.
Watching the latest musical, jazz performance, play, movie, etc.
-I'm a huge fan of irony. My dream car is a 1959 Cadillac El Dorado with bullhorns mounted on the hood. Imagine people thinking a big Texan drives it until a short Asian guy jumps in. I also love it when girls are taller than me, especially Asian girls.
-I'm left handed, but I do a lot of things right handed ie. golf, tennis, fighting, bowling, etc.
-I've NEVER drank alcohol, smoked cigarettes, nor done drugs.
-I'm an Eagle Scout with some of the ranks beyond Eagle.
If you're pretty tall, message me.
I've always been a sucker for Audrey Hepburn, Zooey Deschannel, Katy Perry, and Krystin Ritter. So if you're pale and have dark hair and bangs, message me.
Oh yeah. I do LOVE gingers as well, even the fake ones like Emma Stone or Christina Hendricks from Mad Men.
I'm sorry, but I can't date vegetarians nor vegans. I'm a meat lover and stuff like that NEVER truly works out. I love Korean bbq and no one can seriously just eat kim chee and tofu while I'm cooking meat in front of them.
Oh and if you think "wherefore" in "wherefore art thou Romeo?" means where, DON'T message me. You stupid!
