I like to be around people who challenge me and who help me look at the world and myself in new and different ways. I like to think of my sense of humor as being quick and witty, but not all of my jokes are "winners". Either way, I laugh a lot, and it's a nice bonus when other people laugh too!
My favorite board game is Settlers of Catan and I will gladly stay in to drink beer and play. I am really good at tying knots.
Outside of work I'm just trying to enjoy life and get outside of the city to explore. I I've gotten into alpine climbing over the past year and I try and spend my weekends in the mountains. Although, I still enjoy a nice relaxing weekend in the city.

Movies: Breaking Away. I still hold my breath at the last scene even after seeing it a hundred times. The Big Lebowski is second on the list, followed closely by the Lion King.
I don't know if this counts as a movie, but I think Planet Earth is just the best and every time I watch it I want to quit grad school and join the camera crew. I also have a small crush on David Attenborough because of it. Truth be told, it's not a small crush...
