My self-summary
I'm the type of guy that values the intangible things like good relationships, good friends, and good conversation. Oh, and good food! Can't forget that. I strive for a nice balance in life because it's just too short to do otherwise

As far as personality goes, I'm pretty easygoing, and pretty talkative with people I feel comfortable around. I place a high value on trust and being kind/considerate. Not necessarily in the "save the world" kind of way, but more in the "live each day as best you can" kind of way. I tend to be fairly honest myself (I hope), though ironically you only have my word for that right now. This doesn't mean I'm blunt though. I will try to tell you honest things in as nice and friendly a way as possible. How you say something really does make a difference.

People say I'm a great guy, but you can find out for yourself =). I like to think that I'm the classic "nice guy".. but perhaps I shouldn't admit that since a lot of girls may find that boring! But yes - that's as close as I'll ever get to saying something egotistical.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently a scientist (biology/biotech), but pivoting towards an entirely different field (law). So I guess I'm reinventing myself in a sense.

However, since work will never never beat play (unless I'm an ice cream taste-tester), I try to have a lot of other interests, whether it be trying a new restaurant/coffee shop, thumbing through a book of classic art, or baking.

The baking thing I only started recently, and it's part of my idealistic hope that I can become a pastry chef later in life. I figure I need the 20 years of experience =). That is one non-negotiable thing with me -- life is too short for bad dessert!
I’m really good at
I'd like to think that I'm good at holding a conversation, making people laugh, and above all, being a good friend. My friends do say I'm pretty good at listening and being available to bounce ideas/emotions off of.

And I try to always be considerate to wait staff. They have a hard job!
The first things people usually notice about me
Umm.. I'm kind of tall for an Asian guy? Actually the first thing people think about me is that I'm smart.. which I don't think is true. Besides, I'd rather be known as an overall good person, not just for one facet of my personality.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
"The Great Gatsby". Definitely - my favorite novel. I've been reading classics recently because I figure.. they're classics for a reason and must be good. I've also been told I'm one of the rare guys who has read (and enjoys) Jane Austen's novels.

I'm flexible here. I have a nostalgic love for classic Disney movies. Anything that's based on a true story, or a good book, or has some sort of inspiring tale will likely draw me in.

Pretty flexible here as well. I'll be OK with most things, as long as it has a good tune.

Gotta love food! I like lots of different foods, but sometimes I do feel like sticking with "safe" dishes I know are good. I'm not a fan of spicy dishes, just because I never ate them (but of course, I don't mind if you do!)
Six things I could never do without
1.) Good friends are a must.
2.) Sunshine (it's a native Californian thing).
3.) Interesting people/thoughts
4.) Witty conversation
5.) Anything else that makes life worth living =)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Anything that strikes my curiosity. Don't let the scientist bit fool you -- I'm just as happy learning about art or architecture.

I can also think about random things, like why I prefer broccoli over cauliflower (my conclusion: I think the white color of cauliflower just puts me off.. veggies aren't supposed to be white! They're supposed to be a nice leafy green).

(I apologize if you loved cauliflower and that comment just ruined it for you.)
On a typical Friday night I am
.. just hanging out with friends, doing whatever. As long as I'm surrounded by great people, it doesn't really matter. I'm not picky - I don't *have* to be doing anything on Fridays or Saturdays. I think this goes along with the fact that I'm easily amused.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't ever want to grow up. Being an adult is over-rated.. Hmm, maybe that's not a really private thing, but I don't mean child-like in an immature way. A child-like sense of joy and wonder is pretty important. I tend to think that people who lose this become too cynical and lose a little bit of their soul.
You should message me if
.. you're a kind person who enjoys a good conversation. Or possibly if you think I'm interesting/fascinating =)
