The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm passionate about fitness/health (running, lifting weights, yoga, hiking). I enjoy dancing (I teach Michael Jackson-styled flash mobs all over DC, and was in a salsa troupe), music (I played alto saxophone), sports (love the majors, especially basketball), and comedy (I used to do improv comedy in DC). I enjoy my work and am building a great career in communications. I grew up in NYC, lived in London, and love traveling. I believe in living a fun, adventurous, positive life without regrets - seeing many different places, meeting many different people, achieving much success, and doing as much good as possible.
I typically spend my leisure time
Running, dancing, traveling, reading, and watching sports. I love a good crime drama like Dexter or Breaking Bad. Love trying out new restaurants for sushi, dim sum, pizza, burgers, and tapas. I also wail at karaoke and have a pretty good poker face.
The most influential person in my life has been
Affectionate. Non-smoker. A great sense of humor. Caring and not selfish. Emotionally stable. Someone who enjoys life, learning, adventure, and sushi making potluck parties. :-)
The first thing people notice about me
A fabulous girl that I met here said that in first meeting me, I project a "very confident aura, and that I instantly put her at ease."
The last book I read and enjoyed
Bon appetite magazine - for the pictures ;-)
The three things which I am most thankful for
- The family, friends, mentors, and strangers who have given me much
- Financial and job security- I'm grateful for the opportunity to pursue my passions and become successful
- Strong health- not something I think about everyday, but being able to live actively without any diseases or health issues is really a blessing
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I may look young (it's the Asian genes; I'll look like this until I'm 70, then instantly wrinkle up overnight), but I'm an experienced and confident guy for my age. I speak Chinese, am well traveled within the US and abroad, a senior communications professional, and own my home.
Friends Describe me as
Dependable, Optimistic, Outgoing, Physically Fit
A little more about me
I can dance like Michael Jackson. I have a BIG appetite. I eat like 5 times a day. Having said that, I eat pretty healthy most of the time (with occassional indulgences on dark chocolate and 5 guys). I don't smoke and it's a dealbreaker if you do.
