Truth, Freedom, and Love

About Me

I am...

- a full-time working professional who enjoys his job: I work early and get out of work by 3PM. How sweet is that?

- multi-cultural: I lived in various countries throughout my childhood, such as West Africa, Europe, and Asia.

- creative: Ideas, ideas, I got plenty of them. Give me a toothpick and ask me to make something with it. Ok, scratch that. Give me something like play-doh or lego.

- visionary: I plan my future and I'm a go-getter at what I want.

- friendly: I've been told that I am friendly and I hope to keep it that way.

- caring: I love kids as long as they don't bite. Just kidding! I grew up in a caring and loving environment, and I reflect every aspect of it. I love my family and friends.

- understanding: I don't easily get angered and I try to understand what the core of the matter is. My definition of understanding is an effort to find the differences between two people and try to find common ground.

- compassionate about life: La vita è bella

- detail oriented: I'm good at noticing subtle changes and I put much detail to my work.

- not into drugs or smoking: I don't need more addiction in life. Sucrose and caffeine is enough already.

- occasional romantic advocate: I believe that in life, there are moments when romantic moments accentuate the mood. Picturesque moments, such as a wishing star passing through the sky.

- a movie-holic: I should make a list of the movies I've watched... I'll be amazed if I even manage to write them all. I can quote several movies in conversations if the occasion rises.

- funny: Am I? It's a rhetorical question. I don't do stand-ups or have a show like Dave Chappelle, but I manage to make people giggle, which leads to uncontrollable laugh, following incapacitated breathing, and subsequently to sudden death.

My Interests

acoustic guitar, bass guitar, beaches, camping, caring, comedy, constructive thoughts, conversations, creativity, small details, arts & drawing, driving in the rain, optimization, fishing, eating good food, hanging out, honest people, humor, import cars, LEGOs, making stuff, mixed drinks, movies, music, thunderstorms, outdoors, parties, unintentional romantic moments, singing, soccer, football, ultimate frisbee, traveling, UCLA Bruins, video games (PC & consoles), digital photography (dSLR).

I'd like to meet:

- You love Jesus: Sharing the same faith is something I look for.

- You can hold a good conversation: This is so important because it's the only leverage to know what's on your mind.

- You have a vision for the future: Someone with goals and motivation to follow-through.

- You can have fun in any given situation: Indoors or outdoors, beach or the desert, having fun means making the best moment out of what's given.

- You do not do drugs or drink excessively: Obvious lifestyle differences.

- You have a wonderful smile: A genuine smile can melt away any worries in life.

- You take care of yourself: Good hygiene, healthy diet... because I take care of myself.

This list is just a guideline so feel free to message me and we can be friends.

"that's her"

Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep. Wa...
