I've been inspired by books like Reading Lolita in Tehran, Three
Cups of Tea, Radical Simplicity, Getting Things Done. I enjoy books
about Middle East politics, culture, literature, and people. Other
authors I like: Tom Robbins, PKD, Augusten Burroughs.
I'm not really a movie buff. I'd take a campfire over a theatre any
day. But when I'm home I love watching comedy, musical
performances, and documentaries about social issues.
My taste in music ranges wildly. But I especially like passionate
female singer songwriters, ambient, and world music. Musicians I
like: Yasmin Levy, Tycho, Yann Tiersen, Santana, Cat Empire,
Someone Still Loves you Boris Yeltsin, Adelle, Strunz and Farah,
Sinead O Conner, Shawn Colvin, Florence and the Machine, Death Cab
for Cutie, Cat Stevens, B52's, Dead Can Dance, Luscious Jackson,
I like seeing live music in really small intimate venues. I've
cultivated a special passion and love for Persian classical music.
Also, I love flamenco.
I Looooooove food. I like to cook for people, especially Southern
style comfort food. I eat Indian, Thai, Persian- I make a lot of
those dishes. I couldn't live without gluten free crepes and dosa.
I like to go out for a beer or have a glass of wine with dinner.
