My self-summary
I'm a playful Third Culture Kid with an insatiable curiosity. I probably say yes more often than I should, but life is short and I just want to experience it all
What I’m doing with my life
I was born in Taichung, grew up in Melbourne, and schooled in the Bay Area and in San Diego. I consider San Francisco to be home.

I took a year off after school and backpacked all over SE Asia and Oceania. Highlights included getting attacked by a titan triggerfish, getting attacked by a wild boar, and getting attacked by a ladyboy. Wouldn't that make a great would-you-rather question?

I worked as a health actuary in Seattle for 2 years and quit shortly after I got my credentials. Building predictive models for health insurance just isn't fun when you have the data for so many other cooler things.

I recently moved back to the Bay and will probably spend the next year or two backpacking through the Americas and Africa. The planned take off date is right after Burning Man. Any recommendations are welcome.

A few hobbies: bouldering, slacklining, parkour, kitesurfing, windsurfing, snowboarding, scuba, and getting lost in the wilderness. I am a practitioner of athletic polytheism. I love movements
I’m really good at
being a minimalist

I've also spent over 10,000 hours of my life sitting in front of a piano. Since Juilliard liked the outcome, I guess I'm pretty okay at that too.
The six things I could never do without
New ideas
Interesting events
Freedom
My outdoor gears
Breaking the rules
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to use my time more efficiently when I only get 24 hours a day, introspection and outrospection, the human experience, the human conditions, and where everything came from. It would be pretty cool if there's a way to set up a parallel universe/ alternative reality and just experiment with it

dudes
You should message me if
you think I'm cute and want to go on a date with me, or you are curious about me and just want to keep things platonic. I've met a few friends through OKCupid and so far it's been pretty awesome :)
