My self-summary
(I am traveling to London in December and would love to meet people to go out and explore with. If anyone is interested, please message me and we can get to know each other. I'm super excited and I look forward to the adventure!)

I am a Korean American and I was born in Seoul, South Korea. I was adopted at 14 months old to a family that I love more than I could ever explain. They are my life and reason why I am here today. <3

I went to the Kansas City Art Institute and graduated with a BFA with an emphasis in painting; I am an artist/painter. I like painting landscapes and I like painting in abstraction.

:) I hope that what I create can make an impact on people and they feel something real and emotional. I would like to create something that lasts longer than myself; an idea, or a book, or a work of art.

I Like to work hard and I strive to be the best at whatever it is that I do. I believe in the idea that once I start something, I finish it until the end.
What I’m doing with my life
I manage a small sushi restaurant and I am a sushi chef. I have passed the rigorous sushi tests and have moved to the rank of Master. I love what I do and am considered one of the best here in Kansas City. I have pondered on the idea of starting my own business with a sushi food truck, but looking into taking over a restaurant in the near future possibly.
Really, I am just like you. I'm trying to get things in order with my life into a good direction, taking the necessary gradual steps while being patient with life.
I’m really good at
Painting and making sushi! :p I am ambidextrous and that's pretty awesome. I think being dominantly left-handed forced me to really work on my dexterity with my right hand. The damn right-handed world forcing Leftys to use their Righty. lol
The first things people usually notice about me
That I am Asian. (^ㅅ^) I am really down to earth, genuine, and very sincere to people unless you're a Trump supporter.

I wish there was a way to erase it from my memory, but also find it amusing to remember songs.

Food: I enjoy GOOD FOOD!!! Not fast food! I've eaten so many different things and I will try anything at least once.
I can truthfully say that I have not had Taco Bell, Wendys, Burger King, Popeyes, Churches, KFC, Arbys in over 10 years now. McDonalds somehow got me earlier this year. :/ I just was so hungry! You are what you eat!

The six things I could never do without
1. Delicious food
2. My family
3. My friends
3. Art
4. Making art/painting
5. Music
6. Soccer (football)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The universe, wormholes, black holes, time, space, planets, galaxies, the fourth dimension, parallel universes, et cetera...

Other not so serious things that I think about: What I am going to eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? What does my cat think of me?
On a typical Friday night I am
I am either hanging out with friends, working out at the gym, working in studio, or watching movies on netflix. Most of the time it is working in studio trying to get my painting time in. I like to go out, but I also like to just take it easy and have a quiet night at home relaxing while sipping on some fine red wine or whiskey.
You should message me if
...if you are interested in getting to know me better than just what I have on okcupid. Does anyone ever read all the way to the bottom?!?! I feel like I'm the only idiot guy who does.
