For fun it's typically a random assortment of guitar, brewing, board games, and cooking meals that involve the best ingredients I can find and generous amounts of butter. Over seven years in Blacksburg, Virginia I got into a bunch of outdoor sports- climbing, mountain biking and backcountry skiing are at the top of the list right now.
A few years back, I was in the Army. I lucked out, and it was a great experience for me, despite having an intense job. Lived in Germany, traveled all over Europe plus Morocco for fun... and Iraq for work. The folks I met in those years showed me how great working with truly passionate people could be.
Huge fan of well-written shows and movies, things like Cosmos, 30 Rock, Sherlock, In a World... Really well-done science fiction and fantasy stuff too - Black Mirror, Game of Thrones, Interstellar, Sunshine
Music-wise, Alt-J, the New Pornographers, Boards of Canada, and Goat Rodeo come to mind. Especially enjoy listening to groups that really nail the boundary between two great types of music
Also, my screen name on here is a reference to a band I was in... we played open mic nights :)
