I'm Jason. I'm a 25 year old Californian by birth who has spent most of his life in Seattle. I just recently moved out to San Jose, and am loving being back in the sun! I graduated with a B.S. in biochemistry and a B.A. in psychology, so my friends 'lovingly' refer to me as the mad scientist of the group. I'm hoping silicon valley lives up to it's reputation, because I'm searching for a lab position somewhere so I can put this degree to use! For now though I'm enjoying the night life bartending and serving for a living.
I'm kind of a weird one when it comes to my hobbies. I'll be the first to admit that I don't know shit when it comes to sports. I definitely can enjoy watching or going to games with my friends, but the stat-tracking and fantasy league affliction never really appealed to me. I'm usually reading, going to movies, or finding a concert to rage at if I have a free night. I love music. I'll listen to anything that's good live, but right now I've been really enjoying the EDM scene here in Cali. I know it's not everyone's cup o' tea, but take me to a show with some grimy dubstep or electro and I'm a happy, shufflin' maniac. That being said, I grew up with my hippie dad being in a bluegrass band for as long as I can remember, and my Colombian mother listening to flamenco and pan-flute music, so my taste for music is best described as 'eclectic'. If I'm not dancing or listening to music though, you'll probably find me cooking, laughing at stuff on reddit, bar-hopping with my friends, or just getting lost in this fun new town I call home.
Don't really get to read as much as I'd like to these days, but my favorites are Kitchen Confidential, Harry Potter, The Wheel of Time series, A Game of Thrones, Guns, Germs and Steel, and The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy.
The Boondock Saints, The Bourne Trilogy, Inception, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Liar Liar, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Reservoir Dogs, American Psycho.
Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, Arrested Development, Futurama, Planet Earth, Californication, Mushi-Shi, Battlestar Galactica, Weeds, Archer, Firefly, The Universe, Modern Marvels.
Anything you put in front of me. Seriously. I love looking up random restaurants on yelp and going on food adventures! I'll try anything. If I had to choose a favorite it would be your classic diner breakfast though. Biscuits and gravy FTW!
