My self-summary
I'm Buddhist. I love swimming, riding bikes, and soccer. Often times, I ask myself why did I procrastinate all that work. Now I'm a professional in the field, these bad habits need to be kicked. Definitely on the introspective side of things and need a bit of downtime to function right. Thus, I love to travel. I love movies.
By Almodovar. like Hable con Ella, La Mala Educacion, and Que he hecho yo para merecer esto?. I speak five languages: Espanol, Francais, English, Nihongo, and Zhongwen. Would love to be more, do more, and explore more with friends and with a relationship as well.

Pues, estuve en espana hace unos 10 anos...pues, no se si te puede responder bastante bien en el espanol, pero me gustaria concer gente hispanohablante para practicar mas la idoma espanola y comunicar, por si acaso tengo la oportunidad de trabajar o estudiar otra vez en Espanya o en algun sitio del mundo hispanohablante.

I am flexible, committed, and understanding.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a recent graduate of a Master's program in Urban Planning in California. Got "the job" in the Boston region and am happily exploring New England, making friends, and reconnecting with those friends that have made their way to this coast. I love food so, I'm attempting to try as many different cuisines and restaurants as my budget and time allow. I also spend time working, hanging out, encouraging, and celebrating life with the young men of my Buddhist organization.
I’m really good at
Learning languages, meeting people (on a one-on-one basis), finding the best in people.

Riding my bike. Getting to the gym. Hiking. Making friends.
The first things people usually notice about me

I spend a lot of time thinking about
What's the next step in life here in New England; figuring out what is important to me right now.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out to a buddhist meeting then off to have a drink. Saturday is my day to sleep in, so I "go hard" every month or so. :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really do enjoy being single and I have a hard time understanding the "real and immediate need" to be in a relationship that other people profess. Perhaps the streak of my independence has gone too far? In the meantime, love getting to know people.
You should message me if
you want to hang out.
make a new loyal, quirky friend.
maybe even date.
The two of us
