|Hello and welcome to my dating info page. If it's not clear I've changed my look. You can check out my old pages if you are curious what you used to look like.
What do you want to know about me?
Well for starters, I'm a video game creator. I enjoy the creative aspects of my job. Games incorporate all the disciplines of movies, music, graphic design as well as all the disciplines that take those and turn them into a a game, game design, technology, artificial intelligence. You couldn't ask for a more creative field I think.
I'm also a programmer. It has it's advantages. I can build and fix a computer. If there is a technical problem I want solved I can usually solve it. I wrote the system that runs this website for instance.
I love eating and trying new cuisines. When I get the chance I go out with my more adventurous friends and try new restaurants. I can't imagine eating the same dish or even the same cuisine every day. Even though I look white I'm positive I can use chopsticks better than you!
I'm a music lover. Before I moved to Japan I had over 900 CDs. I pretty much like stuff all over the board. For dancing I like techno but for listening everything is good. Rock, Pop, Jazz, Swing, Bossa Nova, Vocals, Oldies, Hip Hop, R&B, Lounge, Ska, you name the genre and there are probably a few songs I'm into. I also like singing but most of that occurs in the car while I'm driving and being in Tokyo I don't get to drive much. If the song matches my voice I do okay.
I love going to the movies of course. I especially like to going to opening day blockbuster movies and seeing them when you can feel the energy in the audience. I don't usually mind crowded places like Shibuya since the more people there are the more interesting things there are to see.
Taking me to a bookstore is dangerous since I will want to buy 50 books even if I'll never read them. I especially like Art books, Architecture books and Children's books. On the other hand I don't read nearly as much as I should. For novels I probably prefer SF or something with a new idea to challenge my imagination.
I like doing crafts although I don't do them often enough. Making my own art, photography, or even clothing. You might even consider this website a craft as well.
I'm not really into sports, both doing and watching. I would like to do more. I'd like to try snowboarding more and some tennis but I need a partner. I'd also like to try surfing. Swimming is always fun as I grew up swimming since I was like 3yrs old.
I'm looking for someone who is first and foremost a fun person to be with. Someone who says "yes" to most suggestions about what to do. I'm also looking for someone that can be my best friend. My best guess is that person should have some similar interests. Movies and music are not similar interests, everybody enjoys those. I'm guessing that is someone that enjoys all the things a computer allows them to do and maybe enjoys a video games once in a while. That doesn't mean you should be a "geek" but it means that if you find computers boring or you think video games are a waste of time then we are clearly not a match.
I'm also looking for someone that is into the American ideal of a relationship which is that once you become a "couple" for the most part you act as a couple. Because you are best friends you want to do not all but most things together as a couple. I only bring that up because the Japanese ideal seems to be you sleep together a few times a week but you play with your friends separately. I'm not looking for that kind of relationship.
You should also be smart, believe in yourself and preferably believe that you can do anything you set your mind to.
Other than that I’m pretty easy going.:-D
