My self-summary
Only bits of this profile are tragically out of date.

I am currently dating aminoup, who is quite incredible. However, I'm still looking for cool folks to hang out with and I'm always down to chat with interesting people on the internet.

Someone on the internet wrote a song about my OkCupid profile. What. ( )

I just got back from a trip to Korea. No, not this Korea. The other Korea.

I enjoy language, wordplay, math, logic, absurdity, beer, and spontaneous adventures.
What I’m doing with my life
Travelling and doing things on the Internet. It's pretty fantastic. High on the list to visit: Iran, DPRK again, maybe Croatia?

North Korea kind of blew my mind a little bit.
I’m really good at
Being an annoying travel hipster. Nesting parentheses. Sharing underappreciated finds in the world of books, music, and adventures.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height. Asian children flee in terror.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Authors -- I read a lot. Many of my attitudes and opinions on life are strongly influenced by the books of Robert Heinlein, Spider Robinson, and John D. MacDonald. If you like one of these authors and haven't discovered one of the other two, man, do yourself a favor and check them out. I also like interesting books about the real world, including Nassim Taleb's Black Swan, Jared Diamond's Collapse, and Freakonomics.

Shows -- , Sherlock, The Grand Tour, @Midnight, 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown, No Reservations, A Cook's Tour, An Idiot Abroad, Planet Earth, Blue Planet. I like shows about people traveling the world and eating crazy tasty things.

Music --

Japanese jazz/hiphop fusion (Nujabes, Kondor, Blazo, Incise, DJ Okawari)
Blues (John Lee Hooker, Koerner, Ray, and Glover, "Spider" John Koerner)
Post-rock (Emancipator, This Will Destroy You, Rinoa, Jóhann Jóhannsson (Fordlandia is a fantastic album))
Vaporwave (Blank Banshee, Home)

Food -- Indian, Thai, Korean, Japanese
The six things I could never do without
Kindle, laptop, and a backpack. I travel light -- as long as I've got books and music I'm happy.

Dutch Coffee.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My plan for the next few years and how the decisions I make now impact the rest of my life. Where I want to live eventually.
On a typical Friday night I am
Exploring the burgeoning hipster restaurant scene in Seoul.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes while wearing my watch I bring my left arm up near my ear so that I can hear the mechanical ticking. It's very soothing.
You should message me if
you enjoy things such as going out and getting some beers, going on interesting adventures in and around the Seoul area, or if you're just looking to chill! Seoul's a fantastic city so far, but I'm always looking for more friends.

You have recommendations about travelling - Countries, places in countries, anything like that. The world's neat.
