My self-summary
I'm only half a Chinaman: Hardworking, just not good at math. Beyond basic addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, I'm completely hopeless. Really, don't ever ask me to calculate anything beyond those four because I guarantee it'll be wrong.

It would be ideal to find someone who can share in my love of exploring the city to find the best food, attending food and drink festivals, witty banter, controversial yet interesting discussions, and my nerd-hard-on for Comic-Con (like real Comic-Cons, not the over-priced wannabe Toronto FanExpo stuff).

There's also a surprising athletic side of me that likes to go on epic city hikes, play ultimate frisbee, squash, baseball, volleyball, badminton, and table-tennis. Hey, I gotta do something to balance out all that nerd-snacking.

I am also an avid backpacker traveler! Without rattling off a long and unmodest list (even though I love lists), my travel credentials include 13 countries across Europe, Asia, Africa and North America, and I am currently taking traveling recommendations!

If it helps, I don't have a human head in my freezer (frankly because there isn't any room for one); I don't live under a bridge (because condos are better for keeping rain off your face); and I don't sleep on a bench (though my mattress may argue otherwise).

10/10, right?
What I’m doing with my life
Currently, I'm working as an IT Support Analyst, and finishing up my Computer Systems Technology diploma, so I can become a fully-fledged IT nerd.

Eight years prior, I had been living out my days as a graphic designer for...an NGO at the United Nations in Geneva, a media production group at McMaster University, and a company in the Canadian Dairy industry.

And also moonlighting as a freelance photographer for whoever needs "affordable photography". And by "affordable" I mean practically free.
I’m really good at
1. Biting food
2. Chewing food
3. Swallowing food
4. Sleeping
5. Showering
6. Being blunt
7. Over-analyzing
8. Over-estimating
9. Under-estimating
10. Making lists
The first things people usually notice about me
1. My lack of cranial covering (c'mon, let's be honest here)
2. I wield a very large camera (no really, it's not a euphemism)
3. Extremely opinionated
4. Relentlessly modest (I never crave nor wish for a spotlight)
5. Fiercely loyal
6. Completely shameless
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't think I have favourites. I actually like a lot of things. But if I have to narrow the field...

books: The Toaster Project, Just My Type, Outliers, The Giver, The Watchmen, Fables, Sex Criminals, Where the Wild Things Are, The Goon, The Time Traveler's Wife, Wizard's First Rule, anything by Robert Munsch

movies: anything sci-fi, drama, fantasy, documentary

shows: House M.D., Sherlock, Game of Thrones, Archer, Doctor Who, Breaking Bad, House of Cards, True Detective, X-Files, Justice League Unlimited, The Walking Dead

music: U2 (pre-2005), Butch Walker, Radiohead, Coldplay, Travis, Daft Punk, Nine Inch Nails, Stone Temple Pilots, Jamiroquai, Zero 7, Röyksopp, Morcheeba, Justice, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Queen, etc.

My current playlist is: Butch Walker, Zero 7

food: Anything and everything (ie. Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Korean, Thai, Indian, Italian, French, Latin American, Greek, Middle Eastern, really, I could keep going), but especially thin crust pizza, dim sum, sushi, animal organs, and cheese
The six things I could never do without
1. Sense of touch
2. Sense of taste
3. Sense of smell
4. Sense of sight
5. Sense of sound
6. Food (since it excites all of the aforementioned senses)

On a more honest note:
1. Sense of humour
2. Sense of taste (flavour and quality)
3. Sense of adventure
4. Sense of timing
5. Common Sense
6. Self-awareness
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...how my dog has started to associate the sound of my putting on pants with taking her out for a walk. If you have a sense of humour, that should be amusing to you.

...how relieved that I live alone, when I'm waddling to the linen closet with my pants around my ankles because I forgot to refill the toilet paper.

...how I saw an ice cream flavour called, "Caramel Tornado" and why aren't there more flavours or foods named after natural disasters?

...how my personality graph says I'm "Less Sexperienced". And then realizing the graph is a comparison average to all other guys on OKC who, of course, think they're "Sex Gods" to women.
On a typical Friday night I am
Eating, cleaning, sleeping, editing photos...basically everything else, but actually going out. That's why I'm on here. I need rescuing from my cage.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
...I actually like crappy-crap; (some Backstreet Boys songs, throw in a bit of Britney Spears and Spice Girls, I've watched Dirty Dancing at least 30 times...there's more, but you get the idea)

...like any self-respecting photographer, I dislike having my photo taken, having said that, my OKC profile is the largest collection of photographs of me that exists.
You should message me if
...you've read my profile and you think you can tolerate me.

...you need something calculated incorrectly.

...you're not against dropping an occasional f-bomb, both casually or when the moment is appropriate

...you actually enjoy being active and pushing yourself to the limit, instead of just talking a good talk.

...you're in disbelief that an Asian guy can grow a decent beard.
