Once described as "the bestest best man a friend could ask for". With that kind of ringing endorsement why wouldn't you email me? Also have been described as sarcastic, funny, honest, straightforward, a good coach and mentor, loyal and generous to a fault. I tell things like they are and prefer to get to the point. Even though I've lived here for 3 years now, I suppose that's not a trait I've lost yet from the east coast. I grew up in New England and lived a while in NYC and can say I left no stone unturned there. While there are a number of things I miss about NYC, I am very happy to call Seattle home.
I enjoy the opera as much as a dive bar and am looking for someone as cultured but also as easy going and low maintenance. Though I'm looking for someone who shaves both their armpits and legs and didn't grow up in a closet. I LOVE college basketball and LOVE to ski. I also eat meat (I'm Asian). So if none of those things appeal to you don't bother reading any further.
I can't say my work defines me, but I am very passionate about what I do and enjoy challenging myself. A mentor once said to me "you always want to be just a little uncomfortable with what you're doing". It just so happens that my work involves trying to make people's lives a little better. It's a win-win. Having only lived in Seattle for ~ 3 years, I enjoy every opportunity I have to experience something new, whether that be going to the Frye or finding a new oyster happy hour. If I could take my dog to Marymoor everyday I would. Also trying to stay within striking distance of the next 1/2 marathon whenever that may be.
I've gotten two ski days under my belt so far this season and can't wait to hit the slopes this weekend. Tele 'till your smelly! It would be sweet if you love to ski as much as I do ;)
We might be a match if you're not from Seattle. Just kidding. Sort of. Honestly, this Seattle "freeze" or "nice ice" is mind boggling. Help me to dispel that stereotype! I also don't understand the camera phone self portrait...in the bathroom. Seeing a smiling face in front of the toilet, stacks of toilet paper or toilet seat covers kind of takes away from what would otherwise be an attractive face. Also if you've posted photos of yourself at a shooting range, don't bother emailing me. If the Newtown tragedy hasn't made you change your mind and you think it's fun to shoot a gun, we aren't a match (Sorry, the event really hit close to home for me).
We could exchange a bunch of emails but honestly, we're grown ups. I'm pretty sure we can ascertain if there's something worth pursuing from the first meeting. So let's go for a run, on the road or the slopes! Also I've been looking for someone willing to grab some Ethiopian food with me.
So go ahead and email me. I dare you. I double dog dare you.
