My self-summary
I enjoy traveling for both the food and seeing new places; it's an invaluable way to grow. But mostly for food. I'm a member of PETA (People for the Eating of Tasty Animals). I love to hike but don't really go out as much as I'd like to. Maybe you'll be the catalyst for a hiking bender that leaves us at the mercy of some mountain bears or the chupacabra (of which I had an encounter with in Mexico). I need to train up so I can fulfill a bucket list hike of the Son Doong caves in Vietnam. I also like playing this game called Werewolves where you get to lie through your teeth to your friends and call each other on your lies. If you've ever played the party game, Mafia, it's very similar.
What I’m doing with my life
I've been living in San Francisco since 2000 and have been designing video games for the last 11+ years. Oddly enough, I hardly play any video games.

I love to cook as much as I love to eat. I volunteering with my friends and playing board games.

Badminton is currently my favorite semi-regular physical activity. I try to take short hike breaks during the work day. Longer hikes on the weekend when I find time but don't consider myself a fitness junky. Which isn't to say you couldn't make me one. I'm very open to try out your favorite activities.

All my friends are always surprise to hear that I've never been to Japan before so with the closing of Tsukiji Market, I'm going to finally make a trip out yonder towards the latter half of the year.
I’m really good at
mac & cheese. it's all my friends ever ask me to make these days. i can make other things, guys! but i guess that is ok. it simplifies life a bit. home-made ice cream takes WAY more effort and i always have left overs since people always hold back when eating ice cream. except my friend Kevin. Kevin likes ice cream. I'm really good with kids. I love to dance and sing karaoke but I'm by no means amazing at them but I'm down to throw down in front of just about any crowd. Despite being somewhat more introverted, I don't really see why performing on stage in front of hundreds is a such a big deal if you're having a good time.
The first things people usually notice about me
people seem to love my hair. definitely the hair.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
food. how normal my extraordinary life feels and how i can appreciate it more.
On a typical Friday night I am
playing boards/card games or out eating/drinking with friends or coworkers.
