I was a political field organizer since college until i settled down and decided that San Francisco was where i was going to be. . . and found a job that didn't end after the next election!
Not to reveal too much personal history - but after years of being overweight, i took up marathon running a few years ago and finished my 3rd Marathon last December in Hawaii. Yes - its absolutely crazy and makes no sense - but at some point over the past few years - this became my idea of a good time.
Cooking (so people tell me)
Finding new ways to use unreasonable amounts of peanut butter to enhance my food/snacks. . . and finding new combinations including peanut butter (hint: nutella is involved)
Books: Fast Food Nation, Sex Drugs and Coco Puffs, The Haj (by Leon Uris) . . .and not sure this really counts, but its been a big part of my life the past few years - "Marathon - You Can Do It" by Jeff Galloway.
TV: Law and Order, the West Wing, Family Guy, South Park, The League, Happy Endings and more .. .
Music: The Grateful Dead, Green Day, Phish, Bob Dylan and more
Food: Red meat, Chinese food (Peking Duck), Middle Eastern, Bloody Mary's etc.
