I just moved to Santa Monica from New York. Prior to that I lived in Tokyo for a couple years, which has fast trains and good food and is totally awesome. Otherwise I've been in California since 1999.
Currently, I work as a lawyer at a tech company in Santa Monica. My life has improved immeasurably since coming here in April 2012.
On the weekends, I like to make cheese or tofu, eat brunch, or see art exhibits. Hiking and cycling are great when the weather permits, and my long-term goal is to eat my way through the Michelin guide.
Yes, the animal sitting on my head in this picture is a monkey. This monkey has been trained to serve drinks.
Smart, creative people are who I am looking for.
