Music: Muse is my favorite band in the whole wide world, followed
by Keane, Fitz and the Tantrums, and Ben Folds Five. I worship jazz
pianists Bill Evans and Dave Brubeck as though they were gods. I'm
currently experiencing an Alt-Country phase and have been listening
to a lot of the Wild Feathers, Drive-By Truckers, Drew Holcomb and
the Neighbors, Sons of Bill, Robert Earl Keen, and Fruition.
I have an unhealthy crush on Lindsey Stirling, Ingrid Michaelson,
Sara Bareilles, Brandi Carlile, Zooey Deschanel, Grace Potter,
Emily Haines, ZZ Ward, and Sherri DuPree Bemis.
I'm a medium rare foodie who thinks the pig is the noblest of all
