My self-summary
I rock climb for fun and because the repetitiveness of the gym was boring to me. I like to try to be active, get outdoors, and get plenty of sun rays when I can.

During the winter, I like to go on ski trips. I visited an old friend in Utah during the big snow storm last year; we went up to Snowbird and you literally couldn't see 2 feet ahead of you! I've been out practically every weekend this season so far, but want to go to some bigger mountains.

I like to play Tennis, and hiking is fun.

I am not a drinker, although I do drink socially on occasion.

I like a variety of different types of food. My favorite is probably Korean.

I own my own townhouse; it isn't large, but it's 3 stories and has a deck, and it's very cozy, and I bought it at just the right time.

I have an old 97 Honda Accord that I'm trying to drive until it breaks down for good. I only have 5,000 miles to go before 200k! I am saving tons on car payments!

People would classify me as an introvert. I enjoy social interaction but I don't thrive on it.

I have a Masters degree in Computer Science from George Mason University, and my job is all about building software systems. Things have been busy at work lately, and I am slowly becoming responsible for making sure my project and teammates keep evolving.

I'm always trying to learn and improve my skills. I have many interests, and I make a conscious decision to focus on just a few mutually exclusive, important ones.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a member of a local rock-climbing gym and go 3 times a week. I've been climbing regularly for over a year now. It's a lot of fun and a great way to get in shape! I took a couple of classes and learned how to set up toprope anchors outdoors. I bought some gear and have been out to Carderock, Talking Headwall, Buzzard Rock, and Old Rag maybe a dozen times with friends.

I also have been doing a lot of skiing this winter. Whitetail and Liberty mostly, although I'd like to do more destination skiing this year too.

Recently I bought some cast iron skillets, and I love them. They are awesome for broiling stuff in the oven! I'm not a very experienced cook but I can grill/broil pretty well.
I’m really good at
Skiing, tenacity, problem solving, and computers. Hopefully I'll be really good at climbing soon too!
The first things people usually notice about me
I think a lot of people think I'm Asian, and I am half Korean, but I'm half Finnish descent too!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I really liked Sherlock, the British version not the American one.

I listen to DC101 on the way to the gym and work when not listening to WTOP.

I like all kinds of food but my favorite is Korean.

I'm currently reading The Intelligent Investor, a famous book by the legendary economist/investor who taught Warren Buffett the framework for his success, which made Buffett the most successful investor ever.
Six things I could never do without
Coffee, my place, my car, skiing, my friends, and rock climbing.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Inventing solutions at work, rock climbing, and planning that next destination ski trip.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with coworkers, friends, or my roommate, up to no good.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My life is currently a constant balance between the nerdy things that I like and the active things. It will either end in a train wreck of confusion or everything will fuse together brilliantly - and I'm an optimist so I predict the latter.
You should message me if
You should message me if you think we'd be a good match. Interest in learning rock-climbing or skiing/snowboarding and being active is a plus!
