I have been in NYC for 10+ years now. I grew up north of NYC, high school in CT, and then went to a college in Virginia. As a kid I played a lot of sports, but soccer was my main priority year round. I spent a few summers doing outward bound like trips or as camp counselor for a sailing camp. I would love to go camping for a week sometime with just a back-pack and a trail to hike.
Once college hit, I started out as a math and computer science double major, but ended up with two degrees; a BA in Theatre and a BSBA in Business (Marketing focused). Now I'm in NYC, living downtown, and work in marketing. I cooked the the food captured in my instagram pics.

Starting to train for the 2016 NYC Triathlon and trying to motivate myself to study Spanish via Rosetta Stone.
Movies: Meet Joe Black, Any Given Sunday, Tron Legacy, Her, Scott Pilgrim vs the World, Usual Suspects, Top Gun. Pitch Perfect & the Step Up movies are guilty pleasures and I have seen them multiple times.
Shows: Suits, Graceland, House of Cards, Game of Thrones, Orange is the New Black, Friday Night Lights, Supernatural, Community, New Girl, Once Upon a Time, So You Think You Can Dance, The Chew, and HGTV.
Music: Rock/Alternative tend to be my top areas, but love almost all types of music as long as it creates a mood or story. All Time Favorites: Oasis, Dispatch (One Fell Swoop), Explosions in the Sky, 30 Seconds to Mars, Linkin Park, Mayday Parade, Glitch Mob, almost any classic rock or instrumental/orchestra music. Love acapella performances.
Food: I was raised cooking and know my way around the kitchen, but mostly cook something European (I am a mutt). I rotate between Indian, Latin, Italian, and Polish food trucks for lunch by my office, Chinese dominates my seamless.
Sports: NY Rangers and NY Giants are the only two teams I follow closely, but I grew up also cheering for the Mets and Knicks but it didn't turn out well.
Kindle App, or my Kindle. Not sure where I would be without this.
Pandora. Between comedy stations and those I have made for music, I love Pandora. And no, I don't use Spotify. Pandora I love for music discovery, and if I am looking for something specific I use Google Music.
Moviepass. This card is perfect if you like the movies ($35/bucks a month, somewhat unlimited movies at the theatre). I might be an addict, I go to the movies at least once every two weeks lately.
Metrocard/Uber. Have to get around somehow.
Seamlessweb. This mostly consists of ordering Chinese food I plan to eat for multiple days, or good Italian if I don't feel like cooking.
Warm sun. Let the tanning, biking, and outdoor drinking begin!
