I'm a curious, positive, progressive, and passionate guy. I'm always ready hit the road, try something new, explore some corner of a city I haven't seen before, hike, eat, drink, and take any other chance to get the most out of life.
On a perfect night I'd be cooking something delicious with friends, taking in a great concert or show, or having good conversation over drinks at one of those bars where you can find some room to breathe.

Books: I've always got a stack of books I'm working on - usually history and classics. I don't get enough fiction, and I'm working on it. Really enjoyed reading some P. G. Wodehouse and Mark Twain deep cuts recently.
TV: Arrested Development, 30 Rock, Mad Men, Broad City, and The Simpsons are pinnacle achievements of American civilization.
Music: Sufjan Stevens, The New Pornographers, Paul Simon, Arcade Fire, Bruce Springsteen, The National, The Tallest Man on Earth, The Byrds, and the great bluegrass, jazz, soul, and obscure 60s rock that pop up up on my Spotify Discover playlist. Let's go record shopping together.
Food: Brussels sprouts, North Carolina barbecue, gambas al ajillo, fresh summer tomatoes, Italian mountain cheeses, roast chicken with lots of sage, kimchi, pan con tomate, bacon-wrapped dates, unagi, and dumplings from Marco and Luca's in Charlottesville.
Or if, you know, you just want to go grab a drink somewhere and talk about stuff. Like the history of cocktails, what was the best decade for music, or DC's building height limit. All good topics.
