I am a beach dweller, desert lover, and urban thinker.
I like to spend my non-work time with family and friends - gatherings, birthdays, BBQs, parties, bar outings at the Whaler, Hinano's or King's Head. I definitely like to unwind & relax too, which I do by reading books and magazines at home or on a cafe couch. I love discussing ideas and sharing stories with the people around me.
For fitness I like to try new things (I'll be learning to row later this year through LA Rowing Club), also love dance, yoga, swimming, riding my beach cruiser, hiking.
I try to fit in some travel and little getaways now and then, and also the many artistic and community events LA has to offer. I love this city because it's my home, and I embrace its many sides.
Sometimes I'm a little *too* good at starting new hobbies and discarding them (but don't worry, not people.)
I'm a great talker, an ace proofreader (good grammar yo, but don't quote me on that if you find an error anywhere in here), and a pretty good singer I must say. I'm really good at being loyal to the important people in my life.
Movies: I tend to like....umm...sweeping epics? Haha, I guess that leads back to Lord of the Rings. Also love documentaries and 80s comedies.
Music: Any kind that makes me dance & sing along! Rock, classic rock, soul, funk, folk, world, reggae, pop, hip-hop, house. I was a drama geek so naturally I also love show tunes. Lately I've been super into the blue grass satellite channel, but don't ask me the names of the bands. I just know I like it.
I really love live music. Though I have to say I kinda hate when bands have crappy singers. I don't think that people who can't really sing, or who purposely sing crappily to be ironic or artsy, should be singers in bands. Yes, there are exceptions, like Billy Corrigan. But generally, I have to say this is a deal breaker for me with bands. Sadly some of the biggest offenders in this area are punk and indie rock bands (...no disrespect to my beloved punk rock friends. I don't have any indie rock friends. Oh okay, maybe one, but he's skating on thin ice and really needs to cut his hair ;-)
Food: Mexican. I really like when my food comes inside a tortilla. So efficient. So tasty.
