My self-summary
I'm a nerdy, "half-glass-full" kind of guy trying to make my way in this world. I'm hoping to make a new friend or two along the way, but it would be awesome to meet someone who has the secret super power of popping into my head at any given moment and making me smile. In the sweet kind of way. Not the dirty kind. Well, maybe sometimes.
What I’m doing with my life
I pay the bills by advising philanthropists on how to give away their money to meaningful causes. Some days I wear a spiffy fitted suit. I sport jeans and a tee on others. I frequently travel for work so my office is pretty much inside of my backpack. I love my job but when I'm home, I like to take full advantage of what the city has to offer. You can probably spot me in the city snapping photos, taking meticulous notes or buying quirky items to experiment with at home.
I’m really good at
I can drink without getting bright red. That's a feat. I can belt out a decent ballad at your local karaoke spot. I also own small ice shaving machine to make papingsu. So I can also make you a cold Korean sweet treat (try saying that 5x fast).
The first things people usually notice about me
My smirk. People seem to be thrown off by it. It irks some and intrigues others. You decide.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm an avid reader and like to load up my Kindle with all kinds of books. But I still love flipping through a real newspaper or magazine.

American Horror Story, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, and the occasional Korean drama are my top choices for mindless entertainment. I'm a good movie buddy because I'll go see anything with you. I also have a love affair with football and basketball.

I'm in love with my mother's chicken and rice porridge. It beats Campbells on any rainy/snowy/cold day.
Six things I could never do without
Family, passport, notebook, Mifi, camera, and a handful of candy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How philanthropy can be more meaningful and have lasting impact. I also contemplate what and where I will be when I grow up.
On a typical Friday night I am
Eating takeout and catching up on my Netflix queue. I also like to cook a massive amount of food and have my friends over or organize old-fashioned potluck dinners.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My parents keep asking when I will bring home a nice Korean guy for them to meet. I also regularly Skype with my grandmother living in South Korea. I came out to her almost a decade ago. She smirked and said, "At least you told me. I don't understand why your cousin tries to pretend he likes girls."
You should message me if
You like to eat and/or know how to cook. You like simple, old-fashioned dates. You like to travel or want to. You can teach me something new. You are looking to perform an amazing Karaoke duet that would rock the casbah.
The two of us
