Outside of work, I try to find every opportunity I can to get out of the city and climb a mountain or swim in a river. Always looking for recommendations for new destinations, but especially anyone that can show me around the east side of the Sierras!
Around town, I play music with a few small groups (mostly for fun, don't really play out much). Lately I've been playing a lot of bluegrass/old timey stuff, but am always down to try something new.
Food: If I could consume only black bean burgers, sweet potato fries, and IPAs, I would.
Books (or rather, authors): Ed Abbey, Chuck Klosterman, Patrick Rothfuss, Mary Oliver, Paul Krugman, Jane Jacobs.
