Traveling is a big part of my life. I spent 4.5 months in Europe after graduating from college and recently spent 3.5 months backpacking in New Zealand. It's one of the best educations there is.
Dune, Ishmael, The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings, Michael Pollan's books, On the Road, Into the Wild
I listen to a lot of podcasts (This American Life, Radiolab, Planet Money, Freakonomics Radio, Star Talk, The Enormocast (climbing interview podcast), The Dirtbag Diaries (outdoors podcast modeled after This American Life), 99% Invisible...)
I listen to a lot of downtempo music and mellow electronic music. Some of my current favorites:
Bluetech, Tipper, Bonobo, Air, Little People, Emancipator, Govinda, Phuturprimative, Wilco, Entheogenic, Gaudi, Koan, Ott, Random Rab, Tycho
I love cooking and eating. I make a lot of Indian food and Mexican food. I'm always looking for new things to make.
I don't own a tv and I rarely have time to watch anything on my laptop. I like to read or play outside more. I'm probably not the person to discuss the latest episode (or the latest season for that mater) of a tv show with.
Food, water, shelter...
Things I enjoy having in my life:
Traveling - It's a lot of fun and one of the best educations out there.
Delicious food - I love cooking and eating.
The outdoors (climbing, camping, hiking, backpacking) - I am the happiest when I'm in nature and active.
I don't drink very much anymore and I am not looking to go out to bars. I do enjoy a beer after a long day in the mountains,.
