I was born in the LA area but mostly grew up in San Clemente, Orange County's best kept secret. I went to school at a community college before transferring to UC Santa Cruz. From there I moved back to Orange County before a short time in Oregon. I'm now in LA and love it.
I like riding motorcycles, going to shows, learning, and having fun. Really anything that gets me out of my comfort zone.
My eyes? Yeah, that sounds good, people like my eyes...
As far as books go, I really don't read as much as I want to. I'm in the middle of Free Pizza for Life, a autobiography about the guy who started Plan-It-X records. I just finished Free Will by Sam Harris recently. I finally got around to Snow Crash and Brave New World recently. Harry Potter and Hunger Games are both guilty pleasures. Demon Haunted World, Catcher in the Rye, On the Road, Rule of the Bone, and Clockwork Orange are also really good. I'm sure I'm leaving a bunch out.
Movies would be a long list. I like a lot of indie films, I love Royal Tenenbaums is probably one of my favorites. I'm a sucker for a sci-fi movies, Moon, Firefly, Avatar, Star Trek. Classics are good too, like Clockwork Orange, Taxi Driver and Chinatown.
I like a lot of music. Really anything that is played with instruments, so I'm not a big electronica fan. I used to listen to a lot of obnoxious LA punk, but not so much these days. I would listen to Agent Orange, Angry Samoans, Bad Religions, Circle Jerks, Cramps and the like all the time, and that's just to C. I've been into folk punk recently, I've been listening to too much Andrew Jackson Jihad and Ghost Mice.
I've been into a lot of good food LA has to offer. It get's hard to enjoy really good places sometimes because I'm a vegetarian. I don't think it's a big deal, but people like to ask me questions about it all the time.
