I am a life-long learner. I love learning about new things, places, people, and recipes that involve bacon. I'm a firm believer in learning something new every day.
I enjoy hiking (I go out most every weekend) and I've been trying to hit some new places lately.
My main hobby is having lots of hobbies. Besides hiking I cook, read, watch movies, garden, and play video games to name a few.
I've been slowly scratching off places on my travel list but there is still a lot of the world I'd like to see.
On a more practical side I've been working on my cooking skills and I'm quite proud of some of the dishes I can make.
If I happen to be still for some strange reason, you might notice that I'm fairly tall or wearing an odd t-shirt (I have dozens).
My favorite movies are of the sci-fi, comedy, and/or action varieties. Favorites include 'Back to the Future', 'The Princess Bride', 'The Fifth Element', The Cornetto Trilogy, 'Moon', 'Galaxy Quest', 'Trollhunter', and the list goes on.
I don't have cable, but I keep up with a handful of shows: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Dr. Who, Archer, Top Gear (it's coming back!), Mythbusters, Sherlock, and and a few others.
Some of my favorites bands are 'Pink Floyd', 'Sublime', 'Of Monsters and Men', and 'The Heavy'. I have a vinyl collection of classic rock and I've slowly been building up with some new stuff: just got 'Postal Service' and 'Flogging Molly'.
I eat out probably more often than I should. I love Thai and Vietnamese and I will never turn down good hot wings.
At home I enjoy making a good stew or some type of casserole.
The rest in no particular order:
Good food (hot wings, sushi, pho)
