What I’m doing with my life
Working at a financial institution and studying for an industry certification. Traveling abroad, going to music festivals with my closest friends, and running in NY Road Runners races.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

You Black Emperor, Explosions in the Sky, This Will Destroy You, Mogwai, Sigur Ros, Mum, Cursive, ISIS, Tool, Red Hot Chili Peppers, American Football, Owen. Everything by Mike Kinsella!

Jose Gonzales, M83, SBTRKT, Modest Mouse,Grizzly Bear, St. Vincent, Neutral Milk Hotel, Head and The Heart, Octopus Project, Okkervil River, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, I think its fair to say all "classic rock". Muddy Waters, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk. Mos Def, Blackstar, Tribe Called Quest, Notorious BIG, NAS, Big L and Mobb Deep....This list can pretty much keep on going cross all genres, but I think you get the point.
I usually lean towards Current Events/Geopolitics/Non-fiction.
Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Chris Hedges, Zbigniew Brzezinski, George Soros.
Economics/Financial Markets/Financial History - I know that I'm a dork.
Yeats, Yates, Ginsberg - Wish I had more time for Literature/Fiction/Classics
Film: I've seen a lot of stuff. Big fan of documentaries. Horror - not so much.
On a typical Friday night I am
I guess it depends, I'm usually at happy hour or a show. Hopefully getting into something random and embracing the weird.
But if I'm exhausted from working long hours at the office then relaxing at home with a drink in hand can always do the trick...
