I am kind of a square. I don't mean personality-wise, I'm physically shaped like a cube. But also personality-wise.

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.
I'm world-class when it comes to being simultaneously very intelligent and mind-bogglingly stupid. I consider it an art form.
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.
