My favorite author would have to be Ayn Rand, followed by Dan
Brown. Some of my favorite books include Atlas Shrugged, Angels and
Demons, Digital Fortress, and Masters of Doom. In my current queue,
I have Fountainhead, 1984, Main Street, and It Can't Happen
I tend to enjoy just about anything. Some favorites that come to
mind are Gran Torino, Rocky, Reservoir Dogs, Dog Day Afternoon, and
Boondock Saints. Beyond those, I had a blast laughing over
Bridesmaids and really enjoyed Pan's Labyrinth. I also enjoy
watching documentaries, such as Man On A Wire, and foreign films,
such as District B13 and Phase 7. Oh, and Pixar movies are the
Some of my favorites include: Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Boardwalk
Empire, The Simpsons, Family Guy, Futurama, King of the Hill,

I listen to artists like Fats Domino, Iron Maiden, Dream Theatre,
Of Monsters and Men, Pretty Maids,Gamma Ray, Tom Petty, Mumford and
Sons, Avicii, and John Petrucci. The only genres I tend to dislike
are rap and hip hop.
I actually put a lot of value in vocals and percussion. I sang
solo, in ensembles, and in a barbershop quartet in high school and
for state competitions. So, given that, I have appreciation for a
good set of pipes. -- I don't have anything nearly as interesting
to say about why I value percussion though, haha.
My favorite meal would have to be breakfast and my favorite cuisine
is Italian. As for some of my favorite foods... pasta, beef in any
form (I'm a big fan of the grass-fed variety), wienerschnitzel,
chicken, potatoes, garlic roasted broccoli, and the list goes on. I
was definitely raised to be a fan of meat and potatoes.
As for foods I dislike... sushi and most Asian cuisine comes to
mind. I've just never been a fan! Although, I do enjoy orange
chicken... just, you know, without the peanut oil... (I'm allergic
to peanuts and tree nuts -- it's pretty rad.)
I really enjoy board and card games. A quick list of some of my
favorites: Acquire, Monopoly, Power Grid, Castle Panic, Pandemic,
Ticket to Ride, Settles of Catan, and Star Fluxx.
