My self-summary
I'm half-Filipino, half-white, grew up overseas and have moved around quite a bit. I'm fascinated by anything international, travel-related, technological, cultural, or nerdy. I'm usually pretty laid-back and enjoy just hanging out with someone as much as going out and doing something.

I tend to laugh a lot and can find humor almost anywhere. I enjoy good conversation almost (if not more) than going out on the town. I enjoy hearing the details about other people's lives, what they want to do, how they plan to get there, and just what has been going on in general.

I love traveling, especially in developing countries and doing things in those countries that aren't necessarily "touristy". I like being able to see and experience the real country and culture as much as possible. I'm preferential to Asian cultures (naturally), but I'm not picky about traveling. Stamps in the passport are impressive to me.
What I’m doing with my life
I work for the federal government in emergency management, you've probably heard the acronym before :-) . I'm part of a team that travels around the Midwest to help state governments when disasters happen.
I’m really good at
Volleyball, nerdy conversations, surviving/thriving in other cultures. I'm also a pretty good listener and can usually make people laugh.

I'm pretty good at remembering details about stuff. Random things sometimes, but also just pieces of information and trivia from over the years. However, this also leads to overanalyzing situations too, but comes in real handy with my job when I have to remember lots of particular details.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm a tall Asian.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love all kinds of food, but I'm preferential to Filipino and other Asian cuisine. I can't really choose favorites for things, but here are just a few of them, in somewhat random orders.

Books: The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Freakanomics, Chronicles of Narnia, Physics of the Impossible.

Movies: Independence Day, The Shawshank Redemption, Transformers, The Great Raid, How to Train Your Dragon, Hercules (the Disney cartoon).

Shows:Leverage, Sportscenter, Avatar the Last Airbender, Firefly, Planet Earth.
The six things I could never do without
-Traveling

-Entertainment of some kind
-Sleep
-Volleyball

What I'd like to eat for dinner, and how my future might look a couple years from now.
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying to figure out if there is anything interesting to do. Some variation of reading, going out to dinner, hanging out with friends, watching movies/tv, and/or sleeping.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I tend to sing and dance when listening to music in the car.
