My self-summary
- I come from a family of seven kids (I'm number two), a fact that will inevitably be brought up by my dad in the first 60 seconds of conversation with someone new.

- I have a man-crush on Bill Burr, a hilarious comedian I discovered due to his role as Kuby on Breaking Bad. I'm a pretty big fan of stand-up comedy in general, other favorites include Jim Jeffries, Jim Gaffigan, Mitch Hedburg, George Carlin, Demetri Martin, and Doug Stanhope.

- I love everything about foreign languages, especially Russian. I spend a lot of my free time learning them, and the number of new people, music, movies, and other culture that open up to you as you do it is amazing. Also, girls who speak multiple languages are pretty much my kryptonite.

- I'm recently gotten into rock climbing again. Let's be belay partners.

- One of my hobbies is debating people for fun. It doesn't have to be a serious topic either (the non-serious ones are more fun anyway!). Example topic: Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure did time travel way better than the Back to the Future trilogy.
What I’m doing with my life
I was working for a Russian startup company based in the city, but I recently left for greener pastures. Currently working in Online Marketing for CareerBuilder, but I'm still building up my Russian skills and hoping to utilize my experience as a springboard for a future high-flying career working for the government (FBI maybe?) taking on the Russian mob.
I’m really good at
Thinking of the best comebacks later on and then regretting that I couldn't show off my obviously brilliant wit when it actually mattered.
The first things people usually notice about me
I tend to gesture with my hands a lot when talking, particularly when I'm pretty excited about something.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm officially Team White Walker in Game of Thrones. Westeros deserves to fall for ignoring the true threat.

Also iZombie is clearly the best Zombie TV Show out there.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whenever I'm waiting for something (standing in line, sitting at the airport terminal, etc.), I like to think of elaborate escapes in the case of a zombie/ninja/Russian Terrorist attack. I quickly take note of any objects in my surrounding vicinity that could be potential weapons, and I also silently judge other people around me on whether I could count on them to help repel or escape such an attack.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I tend to talk to myself a lot, and I'm not ashamed of it. I think of it more as "thinking out loud" anyway, and I can organize my thoughts better when I hear them. It's also a great way to practice a foreign language when you don't have someone else to speak it with at that moment. Though I will admit that my fondness for arguing has led me to having out-loud arguments with myself on occasion.
