Here are the basic stats: I grew up in Hawaii, then moved to Boston for college, then to New York for med school, and finally to LA for more training and work.
Hawaii will always be where I’m from, geographically and emotionally, but these Southern California roots keep getting deeper and stronger: a social circle that keeps growing, a house I’ve redesigned into a home, and a job so fun some days I can’t believe they pay me to do it. The Hawaii and California lifestyle keeps me laid-back and incapable of taking anything seriously… except when it comes to food, drink, and hockey. I research bars and restaurants like I’m studying for a final, and I don’t let distance, cost, or guest lists scare me away. I rarely get nervous at work, but I get real jittery before the puck drops, whether it’s a Ducks playoff game or one of my own beer-league games. If you’ve never seen hockey live, get ready for a life changing experience.
So what can you bring to the party? To start, you need to be comfortable in any social setting and see the humor in any situation. You know when to cut the monologue short in favor of dialogue that's edgy and entertaining. You work hard and play hard: if you commit to happy hour you actually show up, no matter how long or bad your day. You are multicultural, especially when it comes to food, travel, and the way you treat people. You have all kinds of endearing, feminine quirks.
One more thing. The Jealous, Needy and Insecure need not apply. If I'm working late, it usually means overnight, the entire night. You realize its what my job demands, but you know it's worth it because the next day I'm ready to play, to discover whats new and tasty and fun about LA. If you're the one who's busy, you don't begrudge me a night out with friends, especially since you know the people and places are worth it. When it comes to hockey, you don't share my obsession, but secretly you love watching me play and love watching me watch, because you know its what I'm passionate about... almost as passionate as I am about you.
Sound like you? Sure it does. So drop me a line... just make sure there's bait at the end of that hook.
