My self-summary
Recovering politician recently returned to the Bay Area after a 15 year absence spent advising members of Congress and saving the Alaskan rainforest. Im still in the process of figuring out what my life after politics looks like. Perhaps it involves you? ;-)

So about me:

I love to laugh and banter with my sardonic wit. But I am serious about my friendships and my family.

I'm an INTP, which means whatever you think it means, to me it means
I like alone time and I have trouble making decisions at restaurants. If you are the type of guy who is willing to share plates, then you already hold a place in my heart.

I love food! I like to cook it, eat it, buy it, talk about it. I wake up in the morning thinking about what I'm going to eat for dinner, followed by musings about lunch and breakfast.

To counterbalance my great love of food, I also like to work out and play in the great outdoors. I had a few silly injuries but I am getting back into it.

I like to travel and to have adventures. I'll try anything twice. I'm an excellent partner in crime and coconspirator.

I also love a night in my comfy pants, and a good Netflix binge-fest with my dog Mr. Bean.
What I’m doing with my life
On the day to day I am still working on finding my place on the west (best) coast. Im currently working as an EA at a really cool solar finance company while getting to know the Bay and enjoying all the goodies she has to offer.
I’m really good at
cooking delicious meals, giggling, making a mess, playing games, cleaning up said mess, dancing, singing along, politics, talking about podcasts, binging on netflix and using my sarcastic wit.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well everyone says eyes and smile, but I think in my case it's true. Otherwise people ask me if I am a dancer quite a bit, i'm not, just bendy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I love Christopher Moore, I adore anything by him but Lamb is my personal favorite. As a wee babe my father read my older sister and I the Hobbit, the Lord of the Rings, the Xanth Series before bed, so I do love me some good fantasy. I have devoured the entire works of Rushdie, Hornsby, Updike, Vonnegut, Silberstein, Irving, Burrows (tears), Klosterman, Douglas Adams and Rushdie. I have read all the Harry Potter books more than twice.

Movies: The Usual Suspects is the best movie ever written, no question. When I go to the theater I am all about action, fantasy, sci-fi, anything with special effects and explosions makes me super happy.

Movies I enjoy on the small screen include Strictly Ballroom, Crazy People, Trainspotting, Fight Club, Juno, but there are too many to list.

TV: Scrubs, Police Squad, Arrested Development 1-3, the League, the Mindy Project, Kids in the Hall, West Wing Seasons 1-4 and Dexter.

Music: Alkaline Trio is my go to happy sing along band. Also Imagine Dragons, Bastille, Lovin’ Spoonful, Elton John, Broken Bells, Matt and Kim, Black Keys, Kooks, Seven Nations to name a few. However Sublime is and will always be my jam.

Ah food, I love it so. I wake up every morning thinking about dinner and other treats I will get to eat that day. I love to cook and my favorite ingredient is eggplant.

When I go out, I am particularly inclined towards Asian foods; Korean, Japanese, Chinese and Thai. I love it so much that I have trouble deciding what to order. So if you like to share then you have a good chance of winning me over.
Six things I could never do without
Mr. Bean (my dog), close friendships, belly laughs, sex, challenges to overcome, and adventures to be had.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What's next.
On a typical Friday night I am
spending quality time with good friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I put purple racing stripes on my Toyota Yaris hatchback...

I was born in Japan...

I have a birthmark I decorate annually...
