I spent my post-college years living in Asia, first in Tokyo and then in Hong Kong. Tokyo is amazing because it is endless, weird, and packed with seriously fun stationery. Hong Kong is amazing because it is a genuinely global city (and hopefully will remain so) and you can buy beer at 7-11 for $3.
Eventually, I moved back to America to become more educated, spend more time with my family, and understand television humor. So I got my MBA three years ago, allowing me to take on the official role of check-splitter at group dinners.
Outside of work, I like staying physically active. I go to the gym regularly, run along the East River, do those overpriced group classes every once in a while, and undertake larger athletic endeavors when there is an exciting trip attached (i.e. mountain climbing, scuba diving).
Otherwise, I watch a ton of movies, read a lot of news, read real books as part of my book club, trade stocks, and eat out.

In general, I like going out. Gay bars, dive bars, hotel bars, jazz bars, whatever. As long as it's not a sports bar, I'm down for it.
