I am very much into motorsports and cars (muscle cars, street rods) in general. I grew up around racing, and have been involved quite a bit on the media side. I would consider it my dream job to make a living in the sport, and feel like I'm just about there. I spend lots of days and nights at local short tracks. I follow NASCAR, Formula 1, IndyCar and so on very closely, too.
I love sports in general and of course root for the Boston teams (Celtics, Patriots, Red Sox, Bruins). My favorite to play and watch, however, is basketball. I'm a fan of the Grizzlies and Memphis Tigers too, and loved being in SEC country the past few years. I'm looking forward to adding the ACC, Hornets and Panthers to that list. I also like to play tennis and golf (although I'm terrible at it).
I'm very passionate about both music and film, and these are two things that drew me to Emerson in the first place. My musical tastes run from rockabilly to country, hip-hop to blues, jazz to rock. My taste in movies is much the same. I also like writing and like to think that I have an artistic side; some of the people that I met through school and have been able to collaborate with changed my life.
I try to keep up on current events (listen to NPR every morning), and I enjoy traveling (ideally by driving with the open road in front of me), live comedy shows, and being on or near the water.
Movies: A sampling-- Pulp Fiction, Goodfellas, American Graffiti, Almost Famous, The Sandlot, Blue Velvet. The Simpsons is also my all-time favorite TV show
Music: In heavy rotation on my iTunes-- The Stray Cats/Brian Setzer, Jay-Z, Johnny Cash, Kid Rock, Hank III, Eminem, Kenny Chesney, Everclear, The Black Keys, Drive-By Truckers, Galactic, North Mississippi All-Stars, the Sun Records catalog, and a whole lot of other stuff.
I'm not much of a cook, but I definitely enjoy eating. I'm particularly fond of Italian food, as well as turkey club sandwiches, apple pie and cheese (see my private info I'm willing to admit)
