I'm just getting back into trying OK Cupid. Hopefully, I'll stick with it now.
I am a diverse person with a lot of influences from experiences in my past, and from living in China, Russia, Germany, Japan and Taiwan and traveling in many other countries.
I like: travel and adventure – getting off–the–beaten–path and exploring exciting places; humor; the outdoors; culture; mischief; why things are the way they are; apatheist; it's about everyone else, not me; music – anything interesting, alternative, indie or underground rap...and stream-of-consciousness...(obviously).
I am ENFP but took a simplified test.
I studied astronomy and geology, worked for NASA and studied Russian and Chinese. Now the founder and director of a company that explores the intersection between adventure and technology through internet projects and start-ups, and through which I also run adventure tours.
I respect honesty, am pro-women's rights.
I am the founder and director of The Best Quest, an adventure travel/adventure media company. Media-wise we update the world on the current status of expeditions around the world and also provide expeditions a way to get their photos, videos and stories to the world. We have the desire to bring fabulous 3D, virtual reality photography content of far-flung parts of the world to everyone at home.
I'm really more of a people– and social– person. I thrive at creative things, arts, languages.
And then there's the outdoor part of me. Mountaineering, jungling, scuba, rock climbing, kayaking, skiing, horse-riding/jumping, desert survival, sea survival - most environments covered.
Oh yeah, a few other things: making strenge accent, stunt driving, kissing (enjoy it/can go at it for awhile), adapting to diverse conditions and cultures (let's say, I'm flexible), walking on my hands (I'm flexible), I have animal-like instincts and sense of danger (my subconscious seems to look out for me), and sneaking into places.
I have my own style. Some people say I have a hippy/hipster look. Totally not into hipsterdom. I just have my own style.
People say they feel comfortable and at ease around me.
Movies: the fight club, oceans 11, being John Malkovich, the Truman show, Shawshank redemption, the matrix, 12 monkeys, dark city, the big Lebowski, Pulp fiction, Avatar, Star Wars, something about Mary, blade runner, David Lynch and Tim Burton movies.
TV: the daily show, the office, community, Parks and Recreation, curb your enthusiasm, South Park, Seinfeld, GoT....but honestly I don't watch TV.
Books: I don't really give myself a lot of time to read, but I really enjoyed reading the classics. If I have extra time I enjoy books about thoughtful science-fiction topics and adventure.
Food: My favorite is Asian food: Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Indonesian and Korean. I also really love Italian, Middle Eastern, Turkish and Mexican. Could the world's best dish be Kung Pao Chicken (Sichuan style) or Chicken Tikka Masala?
Why things are the way they are – i.e. what it all means, philosophy, the universe, etc. Philosophy: I am a fan of Descartes (Meditations 1&2 only), Berkeley, Hume, Nagel and Chalmers. I studied astronomy and still virtually explore the universe. In a world studies sense, I am often concerned that so many people in the world are not happy, and I think a lot about how to eliminate misery.
Let's go grab a coffee or a drink. That will be the segue to doing LOTS of other cool things I can introduce you to.
