My best qualities? I am intelligent and goal-oriented.
My worst? I have poor impulse control and I can at times be socially inept.
For those who care, Myers-Briggs says I'm an INTJ. You can make of that what you will; I don't put much stock in it. I believe that my most dominant personality trait is that I am level-headed.
I have albinism, which prevents me from producing melanin and causes visual impairment, thus the white hair and glasses. Photophobia also follows, so I'm not a huge fan of bright, sunny days or, dare I say, long walks on the beach. On the other hand, I do very much enjoy the outdoors when the weather is right. Autumn and Winter are by far my favorite seasons.
I am presently working as an English Teacher for adult students and I freelance as a voice actor. Prior to my move to Beijing, I worked as a consultant and, before that, a legal assistant at an immigration law firm in Chicago. I will hopefully be performing more consulting work for the firm later this year.
In my free time I like to eat, shop, hike, camp, and play games with friends.
I hope some crisp Halloween evening to dress up as Colonel Sanders and distribute fried chicken from a gigantic KFC bucket.

Movies: I love a variety of movies. I particularly enjoy a good dystopian drama or thriller. They usually make some solid social or political commentary while presenting it in a unique depiction of the world. Of course, I'm not opposed to a good action movie. Examples include:
- The Fifth Element
- Pulp Fiction
- The Matrix
Shows: I am not very picky with shows, but legal and political shows, dramas and dramedies, and heavier, darker-themed shows are of greatest interest. Examples include:
- House of Cards
- Boston Legal
Music: Classical music and modern music that employs classical stylings are my favorites. I am also a fan of alternative and classic rock. Examples include:
- Vanessa Mae
- Of Monsters and Men
- Billy Joel
Food: Meats, vegetables, fruits, and starches are all OK by me. I'm not a big fan of fungi or olives though. Some of my favorite foods include:
- Salmon Sashimi
- Stuffed Peppers
- Cheese Saganaki
