ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I was born in San Antonio and moved to Austin at the age of four. I was there all the way up to college graduation, after which I made my way up to DFW for work and eventually grad school. Though I've lived in the Metroplex for almost five years, it's been in the more family-oriented suburban areas, so I wouldn't consider myself the best tour guide for an out-of-towner. I'm a Texas city boy through and through; ambitious yet easy-going, at times intellectual, other times blue-collar, and Texan but not quite country-fied.

My hair is naturally wavy, and my family and I have no idea why. Also, not sure if I'm slender or average, prob somewhere in between.

I'm surprised public kleenex boxes aren't a thing. Too much litter, I guess.

For better or for worse, I've never fit in to any one label or group of people. It's probably because my interests and hobbies are all over the map. From oldies to basketball to animals to Disney and mobster movies, I'm simply enamored with a hodgepodge of topics. Going along with that, I also find it very important to be genuine in whatever I do. We all have to make sacrifices now and then, but for the most part I believe that you'll be at your happiest when you're authentic and being yourself.

I'm a lifelong dog person (big dogs mostly, but random little ones like Yorkies seem awesome too) who grew up with German Shepherds. Up until this year I was also extremely allergic to cats. I'm not sure what happened, but earlier this year I moved into a pet-heavy area, into a home that left their cat behind, and consequently was probably around cats long enough that I developed a resistance to my allergies. Since that development, I've rescued a couple of strays and adopted another unwanted kitten. I still slightly prefer dogs, but I kind of love how easy cats are to take care of compared to dogs. Feed them, play with them, clean up a litter box (how do kittens immediately know to use them? Amazing), and you're good to go. That said, I wouldn't refuse to rehome them if I hit it off with an awesome, unfortunately hyper-allergic lady.

Are there more ants than fish in the world? Questions like this have wracked my mind for years.

I spent a lot of my pre-teen and teenage years taking care of a baby sister who's a little over a decade younger than me, which probably gave me a taste of fatherhood at an early age. Even now I tend to get along with kids pretty well - I work for a cartoon company, after all. So even though I wouldn't say having kids is an absolute 100% must have, being a dad is something I'd definitely look forward to more than I'd dread.

I like people who dig a little deeper past first impressions before they judge others. I also love a great sense of humor, a laid-back but not lazy attitude, diverse interests, and a lovely smile.

Other than that, I'm a huge NBA and college football fan, and like the NFL as well. I've also recently gotten into rock climbing and kayaking.

A few favorites:

Movies - Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Godfather, Casablanca, Roman Holiday, Fellowship of the Ring, When Harry Met Sally, The Graduate, Life is Beautiful, Black Swan, Gone with the Wind, The Graduate, Annie Hall, It's a Wonderful Life, Disney and Pixar, etc
Music - anything from oldies and classic rock (Beach Boys, Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Supremes, etc) to Michael Jackson to classic hip hop (Beastie Boys, A Tribe Called Quest) to random newer stuff (The Civil Wars, Beach House, She and Him, The Lumineers, Alabama Shakes, etc)
TV - Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Conan O'Brien, Pushing Daisies, South Park, Colbert Report, Arrested Development, 30 Rock, Community, Michael Scott-era The Office, 90s cartoons
Book - Watership Down, The Great Gatsby, The Giving Tree, The Old Man and the Sea, The Glass Menagerie, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime, The Phantom Tollbooth, Roald Dahl
Dinosaur - Iguanodon

Last read:

Currently reading The Cloak Society. It's a young adult superhero/villain novel by a coworker of mine, i.e. I have that whole "Hey, I know the guy who wrote this!" motivation to check it out. So far it's entertaining, and the font is nice and huge.

BACKGROUND/VALUES:
Ethnicity:
Asian
No preference

My family's been stateside since the 1930s or so, so I generally seem to be more "American" than a lot of other Asian-Americans.

People love guessing my ethnicity. It's pretty much an unprovoked icebreaker. Feel free to take a stab at it

Faith:
Christian / Other
No preference

I'm not really a fan of organized religion though do go to church sometimes. Grew up between a Christian dad and non-religious mom, so I'm not as devout as some and not as atheistic as others. For what it's worth, I consider myself a Christian Deist.
