Cinéphile, audiophile, and logophile.
Handyman ordinaire. Bricoleur du Dimanche.
My BS detector is very sensitive. Life is too short for deception and lies.
Taking photos. See the progress on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/dchatenay/
Listening to too much (bad) music, watching too many (bad) movies, reading too many (bad) books.
Breathing, stretching and bending.
Understanding the world.
Trying to be useful.
I strive to be a gentleman.
I try to live my life unfiltered.
Zen and the art of making dark chocolate mousse.

You're an architect, or a photographer, or a cinéphile. Or all three.
You can't live without your Sunday New York Times (or New York Review of Books).
You read books.
Bonus points if you speak Japanese or Icelandic.
You are 16 blocks away from your destination. The next MUNI bus is in 17 minutes and takes 15 minutes. Do you:
A) call an Uber
B) wait for the bus
D) get on your bike because that's how you got there
