I have lived all over the US (7 places in all) and came to NYU for my Residency. I am relatively new to the NYC area (6/15) and still getting acclimated and learning the city. For the last 8 years I have been in Boston. I do enjoy traveling, nature, and just simply walking around the city on a summer day. I have traveled all across the US and many places over seas, mostly Europe so far.
Very few things ruffle my feathers and usually pretty easy going about things. Plus I am pretty open minded/non-judgemental kinda person so nothing really offends me either. So feel free to ask me anything.
like Action, Comedy, drama generally in that order.
Books: Alfred Bester (Demolished Man), Robert Heinlein (Moon is aHarsh Mistress), Phillip K. Dick (Man in the High Castle), Nancy
Kress (Beggars in Spain), Connie Willis (Doomsday book), Man in the High Castle (PKD), OrsonScott Card (Pastwatch: The Redemption of ChristopherColumbus/Ender's Game) to name a few.
Movies: Cabin in the woods, Lord of the Rings, Avatar, Star Trek, Star Wars, Matrix, Terminator and some animes (Ghost in the Shell). Some comedy like 40 Year Old Virgin, Grosse Point Blank, Scott Pilgrim, and many horror films for a good scare. I find that the dramas of independents are much more interesting than what Hollywood ever does, so often trek to Kendall for a movie. Some of the long term favorite dramas include Shawshank Redemption, Casablanca, Secretary, Garden State, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Memento, Good Will Hunting, and many others.
TV: Firefly (SHOULD still be on) and anything by Joss Whedon, True Blood, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Dexter, The Knick, Breaking Bad, Westworld, Dr. Who, American Horror Story, The Following, The Fall (BBC), Newsroom. I also Like comedy - The Daily Show, John Oliver, Family Guy, Futurama, and Simpsons.
I am a bit of a Foodie and love trying new restaurants. There
really isn't any food I wouldn't try, save for liver. My favorites
are Sushi, Indian, or simply just Pizza. Anything with Molasses... Ginger molasses cookies, Homemade Gingerbread (I can make it), and Gingersnap molasses ice cream from Toscanini's - YUMMM!!!!
Radio/Podcasts: NPR, PHC, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, Radiolab
Travel - I have been quite fortunate to get to travel to Brazil,
Russia, and most of Western European countries. I have many more locales I really want to see. I love learning about ancient
cultures, so still wanna see Egypt, Greece, and Peru - Anything

My new favorite quote:
‘A healthy body is the guest-chamber of the soul; a sick, its prison.’
Am a bit of a history buff, how the universe is structured, purpose of life... ya know yada yada... normal things ppl tend to contemplate about
A few words of caution: I am pretty liberal in my views, so if you voted for Trump - "SHUDDER!!!. In addition, If you're more longing for the Bush years or think The tea party is where its at....Then Ummmmm you probably shouldn't message me or respond.
I do have a Cat that I have had for 14 years, do take that into consideration if you are allergic to cat dander. Its been more of problem then one would expect.
