I started learning the piano when I was five; I still play sometimes, but not as much as I should.
My family owned restaurants when I was growing up, and my first serious job was working in a kitchen. I'm a decent cook, and can't stand living in a house with a lousy kitchen.
I like the kind of work I do, but I'd rather be working for myself.
I used to ride a motorcycle. I will do so again.
I am tall, independent, and amused
My close friends come to me for advice, and I seem to be considered a good listener. Conversely, I'm not shy when it comes to the things I'm passionate about.
I could spend hours sharing the music I love. And I'll get around to doing that here, sooner or later.
Books: I read loads of fiction when I was younger, but not so much in recent years (for no good reason). Authors that spring to mind: Philip K. Dick, George Orwell, William Gibson, Greg Egan, Stephen Donaldson, Robert Ludlum. I should write more here.
Food: almost anything, if it's good. I'm generally not a huge fan of seafood, but I love sushi - go figure. The family restaurants were mostly Mexican, so I'll always have a soft spot for regional Mexican food and good tequila.
I don't like talking about myself in public, so this profile has mostly consisted of brief, evasive answers. If you're curious to find out what I'm hiding, don't be shy.
