My self-summary
I'm basically a somewhat shy, nerdy guy with a big heart. I think I have a good sense of humor and try not to take myself too seriously.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a software engineer for a well-known search company. I used to be a musician, but discovered I didn't like music as a profession. I still enjoy playing the piano and try to do it as much as I can, because it's such good therapy.
The first things people usually notice about me
I suppose it's my height or maybe my eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a huge fan of 17th and 18th century British literature (think Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, George Eliot, Thomas Hardy and Henry James). I also like early 20th century American literature. I'm a big fan of Edith Wharton and F. Scott Fitzgerald. I also read Science Fiction and Fantasy for fun and escape from real life!

I'm not a big move buff, but I do like art house/period dramas. On the other hand, the last movie I was was "Bridesmaids," which I thought was hysterical!

When I was working as a musician, I did a lot of Broadway shows, and it was lots of fun. I tend to like "classic" shows to more recent ones. My favorite musical is probably "Guys and Dolls."

I love all sorts of music, including classical, pop, rock and some kinds of jazz. I probably spend several hours a week exploring new music.

I love to cook, but I don't really consider myself a "foodie." I've been a vegetarian for many years, but it's not a religion for me. I love all sorts of cuisines. Some of my favorite things are a really good vegetarian burrito from a street truck, a really spicy curry from a great Thai restaurant or big platter of Ethiopian food to share with friends.
The six things I could never do without
My friends
Music
Books
Working out (gotta relieve that stress!)
Animals
Good food
On a typical Friday night I am
Out having dinner or drinks with friends. I also love to cook, so I like to have friends over for dinner. I also love going to the symphony or the opera.
