I'm a techie by trade (you're shocked, I'm sure). I'm also a fan of live music, karaoke, pub trivia, good food+drink, and travel. Probably a few other things too. I also like to try new things, whether it's meeting a new person, trying a food or drink that I haven't had before, or going on an adventure.
As much as I've always been crazy passionate about my work, I'm also trying to balance it with other priorities in my life (little things like seeing the world, being healthy, having a social life, dating...). Maybe that's where you come in!
Music: My friend jokes that my musical taste is stuck in the 90s, but really I like a whole lot. All-time favorites include Dave Matthews Band, Guster, Death Cab, The Postal Service, and Ben Folds. But also TMBG, VNV Nation, The Flaming Lips, Daft Punk... And there always room for some 80s (New Order, Erasure, Duran Duran), or 70s funk, or classic rock, or Billy Joel, or random new indie band, or... You get the idea.
TV: Game of Thrones, Arrested Development, Community, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, Top Gear. Off-the-air: Firefly, Futurama, Seinfeld, Studio 60, West Wing, BSG, Stargate.
Movies: I love me some Marvel Cinematic Universe (Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, etc). Also live Pixar (Wall-E being my most recent favorite). Love sci-fi, LOTR, classics from my youth like Dead Poet's Society, Good Will Hunting, Scent of a Woman, Snatch... Probably others I'm forgetting.
Food: I love food (and wine, and whiskey, and good beer). I love eating out, but I also occasionally pretend I'm a master chef and prepare something really elaborate with absolutely no justification for believing I should be able to pull it off. I hear the results are usually pretty good, which only tells you that I have very kind friends.
