My self-summary
I am currently living in Honolulu but previously lived in San Francisco, Napa, and Vegas. Wine is my passion and I passed my Advanced Sommelier certification in 2007. However, despite my love of the wine and restaurant industry, when I moved to Honolulu I went back into the corporate finance career path. Eventually I would like to get back into wine and aspire to own a vineyard and produce wine.

I'm not afraid to talk about the controversial political or religious topics. I like hearing multiple sides to every story and making my own opinion.

I define my life by the moments and experiences, the people who have come into my life (both currently in it and those who have come and gone), and every decision I've made (both right and wrong).

I have an extensive travel history and prefer to visit international locations vs. within the states. My last few trips have taken me to Sapporo (I love it and went twice last year), Sydney and Auckland. I travel to experience new food and cultures, not simply see the famous sites. Antarctica, Iceland and the Faroe Islands are top of my bucket list.

Years ago I dedicated every year of my life to learning to make different cultural cuisines. I've since studied French, Italian, Spanish, Greek, Indian, SE Asian, Japanese, and Moroccan.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to enjoy it.
I’m really good at
Analyzing things and I guess cooking. I can also usually blind guess a wine by just smelling it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm the token asian.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - Billionaire's Vinegar, This is Paradise, and some cliche classics.
Movies - Garden State, 500 Days of Summer, The Conjuring, Pan's Labyrinth. I'd watch pretty much anything.
Shows - Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Office, House of Cards, Love.
Music - The Killers, Phoenix, The Shins, 80s/90's Alt Rock. Anything except Reggae/Hawaiian.
Food - More than I care to mention.
The six things I could never do without
Wine key - to access the good stuff
Kitchen knives - to make hopefully delicious food
My friends - I have the best
Netflix - to binge on, plus I own stock
A good pair of shoes - to take me to the places I want to go
Air Conditioning - not sure why I live in Hawaii
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Current events and what to cook next.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having dinner and wine with friends, whether it's cooking at home or checking out a new restaurant/bar.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been to a Taylor Swift concert.
