I enjoy camping, hiking, canoeing -- all kinds of outdoor things, even though I can't go very often. I learned to drive a boat, ride a motorcycle, and fly a hang glider before I was licensed to drive. I learned skydive in college and sailing is next on the list. For now I just ride a motorcycle. On that note, I suppose I am what some call an adrenaline junky. I like to think of them as calculated risks; the injury rates for skiers are much higher than for skydivers.
I'd definitely rather be relaxing in the woods somewhere than at a party, but being the wallflower who can start a fire at a winter party has its benefits.
Getting used to living in a real city.
High speed big data IoT buzzword factory software.
Movies. Well, that's a little more difficult. Pretty much any movie with Steve McQueen. Oh, and The Iron Giant. Old westerns. Kurosawa. I also like terrible but entertaining movies. I've seen The Fast and the Furious Tokyo Drift more times than anyone really should. WHY DOES THE CAR HAVE AN EYEBROW?
I listen to all kinds of music, I can't possible list a favorite. I like classical, electronic, rock, metal, hip-hop, bluegrass, jazz, blues, folk, ambient, I can't think of more genres, and reggae.
Never get tired of Led Zeppelin. Lots of club jazz and progressive metal lately.
More than any one favorite, I like finding new things to broaden my horizon. A foreign film, a writer with unique voice, or a new style of music are usually more interesting to me than what's popular now.
Food though? Pizza. Hands down. I love all kinds of food as well, and trying new foods. But what would life be without pizza?
Whatever comes to mind.
I'm flattered by comments about my facial hair, but you should know that it varies constantly. I might shave it off any time I get bored of it, and might immediately grow it back.
