My self-summary
Looking to meet new interesting and positive people around my area, as well as hoping to find a meaningful connection + chemistry with someone.

Into food (cooking/dining out), TV, movies, video games, art and going to museums, music and going to concerts, internal martial arts, traveling, climbing, shooting pool, kayaking (L.I.C. Community Boathouse!), wandering the city, and exploring of most kinds.

I am intelligent, honest, curious, and playful
What I’m doing with my life
Working an intense 9-6... used to make video games... now making educational software. Enjoy going to work each day.
Games were fun but the industry is too abusive. Now I can leave work at 6 each day and have time for life :)

Practice internal martial arts regularly to stay in shape, stay sane, and to explore the mysteries of the mind-body connection.

Climb (bouldering specifically)... amazing how much fun it is... go to BKB about 2/3 time a week these days.

Learning. It's what keeps things interesting, and keeps you interested. Can't be afraid to fail...
I’m really good at
Internal martial arts (Tai Chi, Xing I, Ba Gua)
Making Games, wirting high performance software in general
Problem Solving
Staying calm and in control.
Seeing the flip-side of things.
Being nice and honest
Being responsive and respectful
The first things people usually notice about me
Tall, glasses, nice smile, calm, easy going, nice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I live in NYC (LES) so in terms of food I'm a little spoiled. NYC really does have some of the best food. Italian, Thai, Korean, Polish, Chinese, and Mediterranean are some of my favorites. Nice bottle of wine and some company will make any meal better :)

Recently after watching Food Inc I have been attempting to cook more myself and its been going well. Got sauteing down... and about to start steaming (advanced stuff I know). But hey... with good ingredients its easy

Music... well any type of rock I'm into, as well as lots of others. Some recent stuff I've been listening to: John Frusciante, Bon Iver, Gomez, G-Love, Jack Johnson, Noah and the Whale, Ratatat, Gnarls Barkley, Willy Mason, Felice Brothers, DMB, Beck, Blind Pilot, etc. I'm also a big fan of live music... especially the outdoor type.

I watch some TV and movies. For me: fantasy, sci-fi, comedy, action, adventure, anime > rest > horror, suspense, thriller. Huge fan of Hayao Miyazaki's movies. My Neighbor Totoro is my favorite (I don't buy the alternative interpretations). Food Inc recently invoked a large change in my life, I recommend you see it.

TV series.... I used to watch Heroes, Lost, Simpsons, Family Guy, FMA, Battlestar Galactica (and thought it was better than Star Trek)... etc....
More Recently... Breaking Bad, Dexter, Game of Thrones, Big Bang Theory.

Oh and TED talks rock!

Books... always liked Anais Nin, lol... LoTR, Alchemist, books on Taoism, I-Ching, the Kybalion, and then books on graphics, games, math, etc. :P
Six things I could never do without
Friends + Family
Peace of Mind
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Body dynamics
How I can get a job where I could work from anywhere :)


Why people tend not to look you in the eye on the street, let alone smile.

How Beck can be a scientologist.

Food (where is my food coming from, whats in it)

How our political system got so screwed up, how its still better
than most, how it can start to change in the right direction.

How I can get out of the city more.

My next vacation.

Where else to meet girls besides OKC.

How technology gets mis-used and/or abused.

If greed will eventually doom the human race. How we can move beyond such things.

Can I climb that?

What I want from a relationship besides the obvious (or maybe not, there are some strange people on this site): love, affection, intimacy, conversation, stimulation.

Why so many people in NYC, including my own friends, are quite self-centered.
On a typical Friday night I am
IMA class (ba gua) after work. Then taking it easy at home or meeting some friends for drinks
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If you message me I'll answer anything... lol... I'm a pretty open and honest person.
You should message me if
The list below is delimited by OR's not AND's

You are a positive person.
Have something interesting to say.
Want to do something: live music, shows, go climbing, etc.

Regularly find yourself in both NYC and Warsaw.

Actually want to meet in real life :P
The two of us
