My self-summary
Former Software Engineer! Living life outside the box. After traveling Asia for 2.5 years, lived in Taiwan for 1 year to learn Chinese. Now I'm living and working in KL on an amazing company on an amazing and fun role!

Love dancing, music festivals, fire dancing, contact improvisation, flow arts. And let's build a sustainable community together!

Let's be friends first. Oh, and ask for my Chinese name.

Everything below this line was live before my travels:

These two quotes summarize me pretty well:

"The World is my country, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good is my religion."
-– Thomas Paine

"Live as if you were going to die tomorrow; learn as if you were going to live forever"
--Gandhi

I'm a little geek, love the outdoors, love performing arts. I'm a software engineer for a clean tech company in the Bay Area, but this is what I do, not who I am. I like to do a little bit of everything.

I'm always reading. I may be reading three books at a particular time. I also write short-stories once in a very while.

I also like languages and to travel. I speak three and I'm learning a 4th right now. Mexico and Nevada desert are my next big trips.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm doing a lot of volunteering at my company and for Greenpeace. I believe in being part of something greater than myself, hence the Thomas Paine quote.

I like to learn new things. I'm currently (trying to) learn Mandarin and to do some juggling (I might try poi next).

Biking to work 4 times a week. Working from home on the 5th day.

Going to as many performing arts events as possible: from comedies, to plays, to dance shows.
I’m really good at
I'm really good at things I've never done before and I love trying new things, which unfortunately makes me not good in anything in particular! I'll soon be crossing spelunking and scuba diving off of my bucket list!
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm always smiling.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I also enjoy other rock variations Battles, Death Cab, Beatles. Also some more pop-y styles CSS, Tori Amos, Linda Perry. I listen to a lot of non-English music as well, specially Portuguese and Spanish Marea, Shakira, Titãs, Penélope. Lately I've listening to a lot... I mean a LOT of electronic music: house, techno, trance, and my favorite of all time, psytrance.

Movies: Crash, The Departed, Monsters Inc, Wall-e, Le Fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain, Gattaca, Seven, El Laberinto del Fauno, Olga, Netto perde sua alma, Memento, Donnie Darko, Zeitgeist

I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends, in watching a movie, or preparing to go camping or to an electronic music festival (psytrance, most likely).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Hate driving on 101.
