I AM A MOVIE FANATIC. I love french New Wave, art house gems, the
occasional action movie and watch several documentaries a year. And
everything in between. (my fave director BTW is Akira Kurosawa-the
biggest genius of film IMHO - my favorite movie is Ikiru -not one

someone (I actually read some of Beethoven's letters to a crowd of
Austin Symphony supporters once and got to stay for the concert-it
Food: other than being one of those genetic defects that can't
endure cilantro I'm a pretty classical omnivore. Love trying new
things and incorporating that into my own cooking style.
