The one thing I am passionate about...
I hate to say it, but I really am passionate about my career. Underneath it all and in my heart though, I'm very passionate about things I'm not very good at expressing/enjoying: music, art, musicals, etc. I only wish I was half as creative as my brother or my mom.
I typically spend my leisure time
I tend to be an introvert with short spurts of extrovert behaviors. 9/10 times I'll be at home or at a baseball game. Generally I spend my down time at home or in a local cafe. But every once in a while I get really stupid drunk and become "that guy" at the club, making a complete ass of myself (and most likely insulting/annoying/disgusting you in the process). No, not really.
The most influential person in my life has been
I'm looking for someone who has the same beliefs that I do about spirituality, morality, and ethics, but otherwise is entirely different from me. I want someone that can bring out all the things in me that I might otherwise never do. And I want to be able to do the same for her.
The first thing people notice about me
People often mistake me as a shy and quiet person, when actually that couldn't be farther from the truth. I just take a few minutes to feel people out and see how I can interact with them -- especially when it comes to my (slightly cynical and sarcastic) sense of humor.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The Tipping Point, by Malcolm Gladwell. I've read a few books since, but this one is still the most enjoyable in recent memory. I liked it because it details how even the smallest things can cause massive outcomes (both good and bad).
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Being able to stay close to my extended family
- Having parents that, even when separated, remain best friends
- Being born in to a middle class family which is so much more fortunate than 99% of the rest of the world
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Well, that I'm a fantastic catch and that any girl would be lucky to go out with me. That's what my mom says at least.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I prefer ninjas to robots (just barely), but I am confident that pirates are far cooler than either. I make incredibly crude jokes (where my humor is at its best), but only to people I can take comfort in knowing that they know how I truly feel. While I think Shaq did a terrible job in Steel, his production and acting skills were unmatched in Kazaam.
