I absolutely love books. I like losing myself in them. I like
living the lives of the characters. I like the journey. I read
mostly fiction but do enjoy sprinkling in non-fiction books. When
I'm on vacation I easily read a book a day so I'm kind of reluctant
to list off books because there are so many. If I had to pick a
favorite book it would be Catch-22 and favorite author would be
Haruki Murakami. Instead of naming more let's just have a fun,

books I'm always very excited) conversation about what books we
I haven't had much time for movies or TV this year but I do like
them. I'm a sucker for a good documentary or indie film. My
all-time favorite movie is North by Northwest. If I watch TV it's
usually when I'm in the shower because I'm a really good
multi-tasker. Favorite shows when I do find time are Game of
Thrones, Louie, Archer, Mad Men, Mythbusters, Planet Earth,
M Ward is one of my favorite musicians. Recent people I've found
and liked are Justin Townes Earle, Milky Chance, Stu Larson, Son
Little, Passenger, Josh Ritter, Jackie Greene, Amanda Shires, Soko,
KONGOS, and more. I also have a playlist titled "Booty Bounce"
filled with R&B and Hip-Hop songs exactly for the purpose of
bouncing my booty.
I listen to NPR and public radio a ton. I listen to Morning Edition
every morning and All Things Considered on my way home from work.
This American Life is my favorite and I'm really enjoying Serial.
Others: Radio Lab, Fresh Air, Car Talk, and Wait, Wait, Don't Tell
I love Lebanese food. Tabouhli has been a staple of my Thanksgiving
(favorite holiday!) dinner my whole life. I eat hummus pretty much
everyday. I also love garlic and onions. I was vegan for a year and
still eat a mostly plant-based diet.
