What I’m doing with my life
I work and live in Boston.
I’m really good at
Cooking, gardening/landscaping, introducing friends to obscure
music from the 60's and 70's, being an enthusiastic
partner-in-crime for both small and large adventures such as: a
trip to Home Depot, trying new food together (cooking or
outside-the-home), road trips, cross-continental adventures. I'm
also good at finding humor in almost everything, making fun of
myself, and I'm also really good at helping out.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, my hands, my salt/pepper hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Unfinished Presidency, The Four Loves, East of Eden, The Man Who Fell in Love With the Moon
Movies: I like a lot of movies - no specific titles.
Shows: The Wire, Dexter, The Comeback, Parks & Rec, Key and Peele, Modern Family, Nashville (such a guilty pleasure), and almost all Sunday talk/political shows.
Music: I like a variety of music and pretty much enjoy all live music shows. I'm not a huge fan of house music, techno, kitschy country. Some specific artists include - Alicia Keys, Prince, Brand New Heavies, Susan Tedeschi, Oscar Peterson, Raphael Saadiq, any Stax recording artist.
Food: really all types - but I do love Latin food
The six things I could never do without
My running shoes, my fully loaded iPod (music), my friends, my
passport (travel), coffee, and my bike.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My family, my job, my next vacation, my community (e.g. where I
live), friends, and my garden.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with some friends for a low-key evening, or relaxing &
unwinding at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well, on here...I crashed the Driver's Ed car when I was 16.
