Work aside, I'm learning to kite surf, planning my next surf trip, swimming in the ocean, hanging out with my brothers and cousin, and doing a bunch of creative side-projects (like writing tv commercials, for fun). I'm also a big reader of biographies and business books.
And since mannerisms / voice are important (in fact, profile text only accounts for 10% of variability in message volume, vs photos at 90%, according to an OK Cupid blog post), I'll do you one better; a video of me back in my old job Tough Mudder (in 2014):
Truthfully, folks seem to say I have nice eyes, which is thanks to my mom.
Political biographies, business books, pop science books. I also love reading long-form journalism and history books vs. being glued to the newspaper headlines.
I tend to like either spy thrillers that you need to figure out along the way, or comedies where you can check your brain at the door. Depends on the night.
Homeland, House of Cards, Vikings, 24, The Wire, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Modern Family, Parks and Rec. Need to get into The Americans, apparently? Any other suggestions?
Generally I get into popular songs a few years after they were popular, then get chastised by my older brother for being behind the curve. But after a trip to Burning Man last year, I'm trending more EDM and dance-y. Check out Ocean Drive by Duke Dumont, it's a good jam.
When eating out I tend to go for Thai, Indian, or Mexican. As for my own cooking, it's generally pretty inventive (think: art student with paints but no formal training) but generally healthy and nutritious.
Honestly though, I spend time thinking about my ambitions, and what it will take to become the man I envision becoming. Meeting the right person is a big part of that.
