For hobbies I enjoy outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, and kayaking. I also enjoy going to concerts, music festivals, reading, learning new languages, exploring artsy towns, and dining out. One of my favorite activities is traveling, and I've been fortunate to travel to Hawaii, Alaska, Japan, Mexico, Bahamas, Portugal, England, Greece, Turkey, and India.
I also was an Army officer for four years and was very proud to serve.
I don't watch a lot of tv, but when I do, I watch Big Bang Theory, Family Guy, South Park, Tosh.0, Breaking Bad, Tim and Eric as well as most shows on Adult Swim, Daily Show, Colbert , and the Documentary channel.
When dining out, I gravitate towards Indian, Ethiopian, Turkish, Greek, Lebanese, Thai, Korean, Vietnamese, and Sushi.
Music is very important to me, and if you searched my playlist you would find artists such as U2, the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, the Velvet Underground, Nick Drake, Dylan, REM, Arcade Fire, MGMT, Silversun Pickups, Yeah Yeah Yeah's, Vampire Weekend, Animal Collective, the Sunday's, the Posies, Band of Horses, Sigur Ros, Dr. Dog, Alabama Shakes, Beach House, Smashing Pumpkins, Metallica, Nirvana, Bach, Vivaldi, Puccini, Beethoven, and Chopin. I absolutely love going to live shows and festivals.
As for film, I enjoy military, comedy, drama, indie, foreign, and documentaries. Some of my top films are Saving Private Ryan, Apocalypse Now, the Godfather, Goodfellas, Requiem for a Dream, the Big Lebowski, Wings of Desire (Der Himmel uber Berlin), Easy Rider, Taxi Driver, American Beauty, the Royal Tennenbaums, Bottlerocket, Dr. Strangelove, Roman, the Cremaster Cycle, and Coen Brothers' films.
