I play the guitar and the ukulele, but i'm not a particularly talented musician. I like to spend my time reading (favorite author: John Fowles), watching movies, and traveling. Hanging out with friends is also important to me.
I love to cook, and I like to think I am pretty damn good at it. I'm pretty sure Anthony Bourdain has the best job in the world.
