I spend 90% of my time outside of work: running, procrastinating
running, making food, procrastinating making food, or reading. I
have a million ideas for fun hobbies that I seldom act on. Things I

I'm a huge news junkie; I like to follow local news in particular.
In keeping, I have a strange love for the Post and Daily News, but

well. I'm also easy going, thick-skinned and have a good sense of
humor about myself.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
