- biking (~15 miles a day when not on tour and I've done a good handful of >100 mile trips)
- music (I play 8 instruments and counting, and I make my living doing it professionally)
- dancing (contra, square, waltz, blues, two-step and of course, super-hippie-jam-all-over-the-place style)
- learning (I was a psych-neuro-philosophy triple major in college, worked in science until very recently, loving my time learning how to make music for a living)
- kids (I have one beautiful 5-year-old boy for half of each week)
- growing (learning to be ever more compassionate, patient, joyful, and strong)
- Nature (hiking, camping, backpacking, bike tours, environmentalism, gardening)
- homesteading (I can bake a mean apple pie, garden, build fences, fix things, etc)
I'm also kinda messy and have a bad case of the ADD's, if you couldn't tell from my interests list.
I am also working on building up skills to be a kickass urban homesteader. Finding a great groove between my double-life as Super Dad (Mon-Wed) and a traveling music party machine (Thurs-Sun).
Learning German via an audiobook. Saving up for a trip to Trinidad because they have the best hot sauces and they pickle mangoes there! Section hiking the Appalachian trail has been a new quest. I've got WV, MD and a good bit of PA and VA under my belt.
Oh, and my enormous beard of supreme lumberjack-manliness. Forgot about that one.
Music - Swing (western, big band, and gypsy), Old Time, Folk, Bluegrass, Irish, Cajun. For me this is the best dance music out there. But, I certainly respect a lot of artists from other genres: Bob Marley, Aphex Twin, The Jungle Brothers, Wu-Tang, Slick Rick, Bone Thugs & Harmony, Brian Eno, Toots and the Maytals, Cake, Lake Street Dive.
Food - I love vegetarian food (when bought) and omnivorous food (when rescued from the waste stream).
Movies - Baraka, The Proposition, Eternal Sunshine, Harold and Maude, Documentaries, Fine Diving, Braveheart, The Hobbit, Land Before Time (just number one, which had no musical numbers), Romance and Cigarettes, anything with Willam Dafoe or Bill Murray (so of course, The Life Aquatic). Most kung fu movies, especially campy ones from the 70's or 80's OR newer ones with great cinematography.
TV: Nature shows pretty exclusively.
