I'm a bit of a cityscape adventurer, always on the lookout for something new to check out in NYC and the surrounding area. Food, drink, activity, sport; it really doesn't matter what it is I want to try it. Of course that can always be a bit of a gamble!
Running a small aviation logistics firm is my profession. Some people are, in both good ways and bad, defined by their work, but I'm not really one of them. My career challenges me and I work hard to be successful at it, but when I don't have to think about work it's the furthest thing from my mind.
I like to dabble when it comes to hobbies, so I'm always looking for something interesting to try out. That's lead me to try things like jumping out of airplanes in NH, scuba diving in Colombia, or paddle boarding in San Diego. I also am not often able to pass a science museum without going in, and I'm considering ignoring the "for children" label on the Museum of Mathematics.
Planning for the next live show or music fest I'll be going to.
Skiing on snow and water. Haven't yet worked out how to do it on air, but I'll get there one day.
Um... staying upright on my motorcycle? To be fair, gyroscopic forces do a lot of the work.
I've given up my cable and rediscovered the beauty of Netflix. Now I can spend my tv time binge watching the full series of great comedy (Scrubs), sci-fi (Firefly), and occasionally drama (West Wing).
For music there is so much good stuff out there I try not to limit the genres I check out, and I especially love Rock, Funk, Blues, Indie, and some EDM. Probably my biggest hobby is going to live shows at small venues, at least 2-3 per month. I'm convinced that the universe has conspired so that at every show, the one person who is taller than me stands directly in front of me...
Family (Friends are just family who had to interview for the job)
A tasty beverage (I brew my own beer)
Food so good you can taste the damage it's doing to your body.
How things work and why things work. I studied engineering mostly because I love to take things apart and see what makes them tick (also because I'm a weirdo who loves math and physics, but that's another story). It wasn't the most fun thing for my parents to come home and see pieces of major appliances scattered across the floor with 8 year old me saying, "I can fix it!".

-Have a sense of humor, and that doesn't mean just laughing at my jokes. It means laughing until you cry at my jokes, whether they deserve it or not. Fake tears are encouraged.
