My self-summary
I knead and proof my own dough when making pizza.

I bicycle everywhere around the city and up in the mountains when possible.

The first things I try to learn of a foreign language are numbers, directions and food terms.
What I’m doing with my life
Fermenting chili peppers to eventually make hot sauce
I’m really good at
* making chili with the proper amount of burn

* tending a campfire

* getting dogs to lick my face, getting cats to give me permission to pet them (then they start purrrrrrring)
The first things people usually notice about me
My clothing choices are based on three criteria:
* texture - velour and seersucker are faves
* is it shiny?
* comfort - nothing skin tight, it's gotta allow airflow
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I've been using Rdio to stream a buncha music from India, Brazil, Senegal, blues and folk music from the early 1900s, jazz from the big bands to swing to be bop to crazy Ornette Coleman. I'll play a Tom Waits album at least once a week.

I've become sort of a podcast junkie while traveling- Snap Judgement, This American Life, Stuff You Should Know, StarTalk, TED Talks, Sporkful, and Radiolab passed lotsa time while on the road and now plays while I work. Judge John Hodgman cracks me up on a consistent basis.

Food can be summarized as stuff that tastes good, preferably spicy hot and/or spicy tasty. While I can appreciate the decor of a restaurant, I am focused more on the flavor than ascetics.

Books - Geek Love, Fear and Loathing, Vonegut's stuff, William S Burroughs, Harold Mcgee and Michael Pollen. My current favorite cookbooks are: Cooks Illustrated Science of Good Cooking, The Family Meal by Ferran Adria and Pok Pok. Wanda Coleman's poetry is quite heavy.
The six things I could never do without
The six things I could never do without when dropped into a foreign land with a foreign language...

* map
* list of phrases pertaining to food, numbers and directions
* camera
* sunglasses
* bicycle
* functioning olfactory senses to sniff out mysterious foods in mysterious places
I spend a lot of time thinking about
when will I be able to fit in a nap today?
On a typical Friday night I am
iEs un fiesta!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to deal sugar in middle school. Every morning I would buy a buncha candy before getting on the bus and sell everything by 4th period. Jolly Ranchers stix were the big sellers. Sugar Daddys were a close second.
You should message me if want to be my test monkey by trying recipes cooked in new cookbooks or variations in pizza dough
