From the Bay Area but lived in 3 other countries and 2 other states in the last 7 years. I was in Asia for 3 year training for the Olympics, worked on a resort island in South Carolina to bring it out of bankruptcy, and started my own real estate company in Atlanta. Despite my nomadic existence, those days are slowly coming to an end.
I'm extremely driven, a perceptive introspect, and deceptively unique. A voracious reader and life-long student, with a strong compulsion to finish anything started. The friendly type with occasional bouts of cannot-shut-up-ness. Fascinated with intense self-improvement and planning for the long term. An entrepreneur at heart and passionate about business. Appreciates the significance of self-control and delayed gratification. A fervent believer in becoming all I want to become and achieving everything I set out to achieve.
Starting a new career on the other side of real estate: finance. I love what I'm doing but I still want to do so much more. I want to meet new people, reconnect with old friends, get back to my pre-Olympic fitness level, improve my cooking proficiency, learn archery, and see what LA has to offer. Want a spur of the moment partner to try that new restaurant? I'm your guy.
I'm attracted to an independent woman with drive. Skillfulness makes me melt. And being comfortable with who you are is a huge plus. I find nothing more attractive in a woman an intense desire to become something more. Looking for synergy and chemistry here. So what are you waiting for? Let's have some fun!
Learning business the hard way
Rediscovering a workout regiment
Learning how to cook-I've improved remarkably from my days of only knowing how to use a microwave
Understanding the significance of sacrifice
Not giving in to peer pressure or socially acceptable answers
Self-control and delayed gratification
Being calm and composed
my colorful business shirts.
and I don't know how to put this but I'm kind of a big deal. People know me. I'm very important. I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany.
Living vicariously through someone else: V for Vendetta, Benjamin Button, the Illusionist, 500 Days of Summer, Silver Lining Playbook, World War Z and Miyazaki films
and then doing it for way too long: South Park, Glee, Shark Tank, Walking Dead
Auditory stimulation: Very much depends on my mood. But ever since I discovered Pandora, I think it may be the best invention in the history of the world. Ever.
Gluttony: Dim Sum, Asian, Meat, Italian, Jamba Juice
My work ethic
the different paths my future could take
how life is just one big gray area, and then making black and white decisions
how our lives are the summation of chance occurrences, seemingly inconsequential decisions, and luck. and how bad experiences often lead to good ones.
I'm butchering my profile because I have a nasty habit of being too honest instead of simply trying to look good. I should lie more. except I'm a terrible liar.
