My self-summary
I work for a small non profit camp that takes under-served youth to the mountains for a week over the summer. We run seven different sessions so I'm gone for a lot of the summertime. This means I naturally like things that are "outdoorsy" like hiking, backpacking, camping, etc but don't worry, that's not all that defines me.

I live in the city for the rest of the year and I love everything about it. My passion in life is food. I spend a lot of time exploring neighborhoods to find the soul of the food in each area. I am a sucker for food diversity so if you aren't down with that, no need to read any further.

If i'm not working with kids or eating my way through LA, i'm watching TV/ Movies, experimenting with new recipes, out with friends or playing board games.
What I’m doing with my life
As mentioned above, I work with a small non-profit camp. I also dabble in participating in food markets and exploring the culinary world.

Driving long distances, cooking, eating, being meticulous, listening, getting injured while playing sports, lifting heavy items, taking the lead when no one else wants to.

I have some Chinese music, pop, jazz, hip hop, techno, trance, salsa... I'll listen to it as long as it's has a good beat and some heart.

Food: I'm a foodie... I like Salt Ramen w/ less Salt at Santouka, Salmon w/ Truffle Oil, Salmon Collar, Stinky Tofu, Pizza, Rustic Canyon Burger... and anything that tastes good. I'll also love anything you wanna try cooking for me because I appreciate effort over skill!

this quote resonates with you:
The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered: "Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices his money to recuperate his health, And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived."
