My self-summary
I have been a very lucky guy. Growing up in an interesting place called Shanghai, I have always enjoyed the depth of Chinese culture while being exposed to the Western charm the city has to offer -- you can take a walk in the French quarter in a late afternoon, windowshop all the boutiques, chat with friends at a cozy cafe, perhaps Chinese food for dinner, and then after all that, go to have a drink at a live jazz club.

I love travelling, and have lived briefly in London, Beijing, Melbourne, San Francisco besides Los Angeles. I came to LA seven years ago for graduate school. I love the cultural diversity and good weather. I also enjoy being openly gay in an accepting environment. But at the same time, I still find it a bit difficult to find people whom I can click with at a deeper level. You can't start a converstion with someone while driving; bars are often too loud, so I am turning to Cupid for new directions.

I live a very dynamic and balanced life. I enjoy going to movies, theatres, concerts and exhibits. I love cooking as well as trying new restaurants. I am recently obsessed with Modernist Cuisine.

I am kind of a political junkie and care a lot about what’s happening around the world. I have a very busy schedule at work but enjoy spending time volunteering for LGBT non-profits. I think life would be a lot easier if we can be less ego-centric and willing to land each other a hand.

I am not an artist, but I have a very creative mind. I love fresh thoughts and new ideas, an interesting home design piece can totally make me smile.

I love to wake up on a Saturday morning seeing my boyfriend lying next to me. I will kiss his forehead with a smile on my face.

I love to share, and that includes my life…

So drop me a line if you find anything I said above caught your eyes. Let's have a conversation and take it from there. Maybe we will both be surprised!
