About Me

Hey there, thanks for stopping by. I'll try not to bore you to death.

I was born and raised in NYC. In college, I majored in English and American Literature while studying Japanese as an elective. I'm actually a quarter Japanese, so I've been interested in Japan ever since I was a little kid. In fact, I've visited the country multiple times and lived and worked there as an English teacher for 3 years. I'm currently in Michigan as a graduate student working towards an MA in Japanese Literature.

I believe my friends would describe me as kind, trustworthy, funny (though I would personally disagree), dependable, and perhaps a bit quirky. I am shy initially, but will warm up to you once I get to know you.

Let's see, what else...I suppose no profile would be complete without a list of favorite things. So here we go:

Favorite Books:
Modern Japanese fiction (especially Murakami), 19th-century literature (particularly Melville, Austen, and the Brontes), some fantasy and science fiction (Harry Potter, Ender's Game), and the occasional best-seller.

Favorite Music:
I love Japanese music, whether it be pop, rock, hip hop, RandB, electronica, or cheesy anime themes. I'm also a fan of the standard Billboard hits, as well as jazz.

Favorite Movies, in no particular order:
The Shawshank Redemption, Good Will Hunting, Chicago, Borat, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Shrek, Finding Nemo, and a host of Japanese films (both animated and non-animated).

Favorite TV Shows, in no particular order:
Glee, House, True Blood, Lost, Breaking Bad, The Wire, 24, Dexter, 30 Rock, Grey's Anatomy, Mad Men, Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Office, Family Guy, and a bunch of Japanese shows.

Hopefully that gives you an idea about my tastes.

Finally: I've never been in a relationship. This isn't for lack of trying, mind you--I've just been turned down each time. Oh well--what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. I understand that this will turn some people off. That's fine. But I figure it's best to be honest and upfront about it than to conceal it and have it come up later.

If you've read this far and you haven't been scared away yet, I'd love to hear from you :)

What I'm Looking For

I'm looking for someone who's honest, non-judgmental, has a kind personality, and is passionate about something. I don't really care about looks. If you're egotistical or overly materialistic, I'm probably not your type.
