My self-summary
I live a full and rich life, looking for someone who may be interested in sharing that life either for a fun dinner, show, or out to a charity gala or the like, or more if there's a connection!

I've worked hard over the years running a technology business for the past couple decades employing (and keeping motivated) over 60 of the smartest consulants around. The hard work pays off in providing me the financial freedom to play hard as well.

I do public speaking somewhere in the world every couple weeks, something that I enjoy experiencing the culture, the foods, the lifestyles of different counties and people, and the richness it brings to the world.

I've enjoyed education my entire life formally studying everything from politics to economics, applied mathematics to English literature military strategy to Renaissance history. I volunteer my time running a Bay Area university, teaching masters and doctoral courses, supporting a space sciences museum, doing diplomatic work for the US government. All of my volunteer works keeps my brain going and keeps my fingers into the things that interest me outside of my day to day career...

My life is further enriched by the opportunity of being a full time single dad caring for my 2 kids 24x7 and the ability for me to share int'l travel and all of my hobbies and interests with them! Life is so much better when one can share life experiences with others, and seeing my kids learn and experience news things is so rewarding!
What I’m doing with my life
I'm doing everything I can with my life, getting the most life experiences as I can! It's a big world and life is short...
I’m really good at
...finding ways to have fun!
The first things people usually notice about me
...and in this day and age still surprises me, but people say "you don't sound or act Asian." Hmm... So my family has been in the US since the 1890s, the only Japanese I know, I learned in college, and even at that, I speak better French, Spanish, and Chinese than I do Japanese....
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I enjoy everything from documentaries to romance to sci-fi in books, movies, or TV (although I can't say I spend much time in front of a television, and if you ask me questions about the latest in soap operas or reality TV, I will lag behind in those topics...). I love Broadway musicals and frequent the theaters of New York and London on weekend getaways, and try to catch whatever eventually makes its way to San Francisco... I listen to the latest Top 40 in music and was a concert pianist as a kid as well as played keyboards in a jazz band in Tahoe on weekends, so I find music of all types relaxing and enjoyable (okay, well maybe most music, I'll pass on polka and head banging acid rock...). Oh, and foods, I love everything and anything, a variant of being able to travel of having an opportunity to experience a little (and a lot) of everything from every edge of the globe...
Six things I could never do without
* email (yeah, my Achilles heel...)
* beachs (I love a warm beach and the sound of the ocean!)
* sushi (find me a good sushi bar, and I'm a happy guy!)
* keeping mentally stimulated (I enjoy learning new things and keeping my mind active...)
* airplanes (it would be REALLY hard trying to traverse the globe each week by foot...)
* downtime (as much as I enjoy being on the go, I also enjoy curling up in front of a fireplace, walking barefoot on a beach, or drinking a glass of wine at the side of a pool and relax...)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...well, for the past hour, what to write and answer to all these questions, whew, only a couple more to go!
On a typical Friday night I am
Typical Friday night, really? Nothing is ever typical, the past half dozen Friday nights have included:
* being on a plane to London with the kids for the weekend
* going to a birthday party for one of the kid's friends
* visiting family
* riding bicycles on the bike path and having ice cream afterwards
* attending a charity event
* sitting at a beach house watching the sunset over the ocean
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
...that answering this question is something that really needs to be a private conversation...
You should message me if
* you are confident in yourself
* you have a great attitude
* you want to have stimulating conversations
* you want to experience something new or different
* you enjoy traveling
* you want to have fun in life
The two of us
