After college, I worked for a non-profit in India for the better part of a year, which was an incredible experience. Other than that I haven't gotten many chances to travel abroad, but I've traveled around the United States a lot. I like to take road trips whenever I get the chance. I'm trying to get to every state. I'm currently at 47.
I play a few instruments decently well. I like movies from the golden age of Hollywood and music from the swing era. I'm kind of an old soul. I love the sunday comic strips. The character trait I value most in others is kindness. Other than that I guess modesty and intelligence are nice too.
I used to volunteer with Alzheimer's patients, and I like hiking and camping. I try to go on a few camping trips a year.
Some of my favorite movies are Almost Famous, Annie Hall, the original Star Wars trilogy, North by Northwest, the French Connection, old Mel Brooks comedies, Memento, Inception.
Books: 100 Years of Solitude, Johnny Got his Gun, Into the Wild, A Tale of Two Cities, Stranger in a Strange Land, A River Runs Through It, Slaughterhouse 5 (and most of Vonnegut's work), On the Road. I'm also really into comics and graphic novels.
