I'm a college professor teaching hospitality management. I am taking a break from teaching at the moment, but I'm eager to get back into it. I've always loved cooking and creating memorable experiences.
I'm a nerdy guy. Chances are if you are too, we'll have some very fun conversations.
I also love really awful movies. This generally leads me to watching terrible horror movies. The kind that are so bad they become good again. (Examples: Death Race 2000, Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter, etc.)
For books, I generally enjoy the fantasy, travel, language and culture. Some of my favorites are: I'm a Stranger Here Myself by Bill Bryson, The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling, The Wheel of Time Series by Robert Jordan, Catch-22 by Joseph Heller and Bulfinch's Mythology. I'm currently reading A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin.
My musical tastes are usually mellow. I enjoy singer-songwriters and Broadway ballads. That being said, I'll listen to almost anything on the radio. I have a very eclectic range of musical tastes. If I had to pick a time period I enjoy most for music it's the early to mid 90's.
Video game wise I prefer RPG's. Though sometimes I'll play more action oriented games. My favorite games include: The Final Fantasy Series, The Shadow Hearts Series, Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, the Shining Force Series, Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey.
Food is one of my passions. I'll try anything once. I mostly make Italian and Mexican food, although, I tend to experiment with a variety of flavors. There's an excellent Asian market near my place, so I'm eager to expand my cooking frontiers that way.

4. A good pair of walking shoes
