A bit of background about me: I grew up in the Chicago suburbs, but went to Berkeley for my undergrad. I've been fortunate to travel a bit over the years, including living in London for a year in college and for three months in 2014.
Outside of work: I'm working out, going on hikes, volunteering a bit, spending time with friends in the city, reading (which usually means catching up on last week's issue of the New Yorker), taking improv classes, and occasionally squeezing in hip hop dance classes. I'm also trying to practice mindfulness on a regular basis.
Movies: Office Space, Shawshank Redemption, Hero, and Inglorious Basterds. I also really enjoy Christopher Nolan's films.
Shows: South Park, Archer, The League, The Wire, Sherlock, Arrested Development, and Master of None (although it was sometimes a little too on point!). Recently started watching The Pacific.
Music: Some favorites include A Tribe Called Quest, Air, Andrew Bird, Blind Pilot, Drake, Fleet Foxes, Frank Ocean, Girlyman, Guster, John Legend, Kacey Johansing, Kanye, Kendrick Lamar, Kid Cudi, Kings of Convenience, Koop, Nujabes, Rilo Kiley, Sufjan Stevens, Tune-Yards, and Washed Out. I'm always looking to hear something new, and I'm very partial to music with a strong beat.
Food: Sure, "you don't win friends with salad", but the tea leaf salad at Burma Superstar is fantastic
