< /existential crisis>
I'm a software engineer (cliche!). Like every other douchebag in the Bay Area, I WORK HARD and PLAY HARDER, BRO. Except without the play part of it. Somehow I've actually taken negative vacation days since I moved up here.
I swim a lot. Was on a swim team as a kid, and kept it up. I also do Brazilian jiujitsu, which is something I only talk about 50 times a day. Besides those, I'm a certified Turbokick instructor (without a class).
I'm pretty good at choking people and breaking arms. Not "really" good, but better than most.
I make the best beef noodle soup you'll ever have. Not the best beef noodle soup I'll ever have though - that title belongs to my mom.
Movies: I have watched Kung Fu Hustle at least once a year for the last 8 years, and am fairly proud of that fact. Other more recent movies I've enjoyed include Deadpool, most of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (although Avengers 2 was kinda balls, sorry), The Imitation Game, Interstellar, and the new Star Wars.
Shows: Currently watching Agents of SHIELD, Brooklyn 99, Bojack Horseman, Silicon Valley. Those last two make me sad, though.
Music: I have two playlists on Spotify that I listen to all the time. One is called "metal ladies" and the other is called "Chinese pop." I'm not ashamed.
Food: If it were possible to be considered a connoisseur of greasy Asian comfort food, I'd be it. Anything soupy and noodle-y gets a thumbs-up from me. I also like Mediterranean food (I make a pretty kick-ass Greek salad - not the one with lettuce, a real one aka horiatiki), big fat juicy burgers, Mexican food, and pretty much anything else. I tend towards casual deliciousness over fancy fare, but I'm not opposed to getting all gussied up for a meal, either.

Sometimes I also think about normal person things.
you believe that Berenstein Bears does not have an 'A' in it.
Also, if you know how to get some decent fried zucchini in the Bay area.
