What can I tell you about me? What will get you to write me?
I’m 36. I’m from Los Angeles. I look white but I’m actually a mix. Hawaiian, Tahitian, Chinese, Portuguese, English, Irish and Dutch. You can’t see the Pacific Asian in me, I picked up my mom’s genes and my sister got my dad’s. In fact when we were kids most people didn’t think we were related.
An advantage to being Hawaiian though is that I got introduced to lots of interesting foods and so now as an adult I love trying new foods.
This last 18 months I’ve been studying Japanese fulltime in Tokyo, Japan. My Japanese is pretty good. I have mostly not spoken in English in the last 18 months. That doesn’t mean there isn’t lots of room for improvement but I get by.
My current hobbies include updating this website, photography, visiting new restaurants and cafes, meeting friends, watching movies, listening and singing to music, trying my hand at graphic design, stuff like that. You could add travel except that I don’t like to travel alone but invite me and I’m there!
I collect stuff. Let’s see, watches I never wear (well lately) I have about 50. Books I never read (don’t we all?) I have 3 or 4 bookshelves full. Movies I never watch (that’s not true, I have watched most of them) I have probably 300 total. Stuffed animals I never see (well, that’s because I’m in Japan and most of them are in storage in America but then I do have 4 or 5 new ones here in Japan). I have around 70 including an 8 foot tall giraffe. CDs I never listen too (well, more so in Japan than in the states. I have around 800 but I only brought about 150 to Japan and I think I got most of my listening time in the car while driving, something I don’t get to do in Japan)
I’ve lived quite a few places including Provo Utah, Philadelphia Pennsylvania, Baltimore Maryland, Cockeysville Maryland, San Francisco California, Tokyo Japan and of course all over Los Angeles and Orange County California. I don’t plan ahead of time that I’m going to move but it just happens. Situations change and I end up moving.
Up until this point in my life I’ve been a KICK ASS video game programmer. That means I’m creative, imaginative, smart, resourceful and kids love me 😉 Making video games is extremely hard work. More so than most jobs I know of.
What am I looking for? Of course all the normal things. Smart, nice, fun to be with, easy going. Some things I’m looking for that may be a little rarer are for example creativity. I love women that do something creative whether is make crafts or videos or music or webpages or whatever.
Probably the most rare quality I’m looking for is someone with experience in at least one of the following. Web design, Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, Director, 3D Graphics/Effects, Programming, Graphic design. Why? Well, because those are parts of my life and they will from time to time come up in conversation and there’s nothing worse than having your girlfriend role her eyes, shut off her brain, and make some snide remark about "oh no, not that topic". It’s not so much that you have to have experience with one of those things but if those topics come up and you are going to give me a look of "yuck" then your are not for me. I want to be with someone who approves of me and that includes liking what I do and not looking at it as "mad scientist stuff".
Other than that I’m pretty easy going.:-D
