I’m very close to my family - my parents and siblings are my best friends and greatest supporters. I tend to cultivate a small group of good friends rather than a huge group of acquaintances. I appreciate good food, but my definition of good food starts with high quality, simple ingredients, not ingredients no one's heard of before or menus that require translation (I can’t stand pretense in general).
I’m a combination of a geek and an artist. I’m interested in a lot of things, and love a good intellectual debate. I’m passionate about art - I draw and dabble in B&W photography; fashion - which I see as a form of art and self expression; music - I play the piano when no one’s around to listen; and travel - to new places and old favorites where I have an assortment of lifelong friends.
