My self-summary
I guarantee you came to the right place :) My name is James, born and raised in Orange County, CA. I am here for the same reason everyone else is here for, to find that special someone.

Despite the fact that I've been living in the OC my whole life, I am a man that loves to travel and explore new areas and culture. From historical landmarks, to discovering new foods and restaurants, I yearn to learn what is out there in this big mud ball we call earth.

Currently, I am working and pursuing on obtaining my bachelor's degree in International Business. Because of my fascination for culture, business and the Mexican cuisine, one of my goals in life is to open a restaurant business overseas. I am passionate about gastronomy and the creation of it. So yes, my lady, I do know how to cook.

Friends, family and peers would say that I am a great guy to know. I like being funny, so I try to make light of situations, but only when it's appropriate. Because of my sense of humor, I can be pretty sarcastic in a lovable way. I am a man that can take criticism and builds off said criticism to become a better person in life. I am a simple man who wears my heart on my sleeve and I do consider myself more of a giver than a receiver. I care a lot for my family and friends, they are the world to me. If you become a part of my life, you will always come first.

Loyalty is one of the most important words in my dictionary. Trust me, gallantry and chivalry were never dead. I don't smoke, don't do drugs and only drink socially with close friends and family. Never been married/engaged, and don't have children.

Well, that's just the tip of the iceberg, I hope to hear from you soon.

Ja, ne.
Nos vemos.

What I’m doing with my life
As of now, I'm taking a break from the business world (used to work in dealing with escrow accounts), and finishing college as a full-time student to pursue my degree in International Business. My long term goal is to open a restaurant overseas.
I’m really good at
....cooking, or rather being a student of it. I'm also a self described geek. I love anything and everything technology and gadget based.
The first things people usually notice about me
...my big smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Other than my business text books from college, I am currently reading: "An Alchemy of Mind". Recently finished: "The Hobbit", "Every Nation for Itself" (Global markets), "Kitchen Confidential" by Anthony Bourdaine was really good.

I grew up through the eighties and nineties, so a lot of comedies from those eras are my favorites! I used to work for a video store, so I pretty much like every genre (except for horror).

When it comes to music, I'm all over the place. Love classical, Jazz, Classic rock all the way to underground hiphop, dance, X'mas music and Japanese music.....yes, Japanese music (enka to J-rock).

Food! C'mon now, food is what makes people smile and remember the good times. I'm a foodie, so everything is a-okay!
The six things I could never do without
(not in any particular order :)
- My family (they are dear to me)
- The internet (man would be doomed without it...or tv'd out)
- My car (let's face it, one cannot survive in socal without one)
- My cellphone (a great way to connect with my friends and loved ones)
- My rice cooker (it keeps the hunger away)
- Music at bedtime (solo piano, soft jazz or atmospheric music puts this beast to sleep)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...my future and plans. Finishing college and imagining opening my restaurant overseas. Other than that, I usually spend my time thinking about ways to cook new dishes.
On a typical Friday night I am
...having dinner with close family and friends. Probably taking in a movie at the theaters and/or learning Japanese.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
...even though I'm not fluent in Japanese (working on it), I blast J-music in my car.

You should message me if
...you want to see, taste, feel, hear and learn about the world with me, one food at a time.
