My self-summary
Born in Shanghai, grew up in NYC, lived, worked, traveled all around in between. Equally comfortable negotiating my way out of a Russian holding cell or into an Icelandic search and rescue vehicle...wait, those are pretty similar. Loathe as I am to admit, a serious side does exist, but who wants to read about that? Suffice it to say I am gainfully employed and can get myself into just enough funny situations in multiple languages
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to see/taste the world. Worked in ibanking, quickly realized it was not for me. Switched to leading a startup instead and much more enjoyable, though just as crazy if not more sometimes, which come to think of it, I quite like
I’m really good at
Finding that one local bar/club in almost any place I've ever been to that's open late, and then that one local food stall that open after that
The first things people usually notice about me
Depends if I'm wearing my Yamaka
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food: Steak, Peking Duck, Stinky Tofu, Kasekraner (if you know what this is, we will be fast friends), Steakhouse Bacon, Wings, Banh mi

Books: Dune (Frank Herbert in general), 1984, Animal Farm, Brave New World (I guess I like dystopia), Guns Germs and Steel, Lord of the Flies, Clockwork Orange, did I mention Dune? Comics on occasion

Movies/TV: Dark Knight, Fight Club, Inception, Saving Private Ryan, The Usual Suspects, Old School, Star Wars, The Rock, Breaking Bad, Homeland, Strikeback (oh the amazing one liners)
The six things I could never do without
Assuming food and friends are a given, then:

My passport (40+ countries) , Hockey/NY Rangers, Books, Sunday Football, nice glass of scotch, gatorade for that hangover
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What would I do different next time I get stuck in a glacier 25 miles from the nearest town in Iceland?
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends, though where in the world that is varies. Hopefully somewhere we can cause some trouble
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Survive facebook, twitter, etc. and get caught by an OkCupid profile? Let's leave it to the in person profile before embarrassing myself further
You should message me if
You like: traveling, food, books, hockey, scuba, traveling AND eating
Oh, and glasses super plus
