I'm a big USC football fan, a bandwagon Seahawks fan, and my background is in analytics so I'm a bit of a nerd at heart. Although I don't get to do it often enough, I absolutely love to travel. My favorite place in the world is London and my most recent trip abroad was an epic Iceland road trip!
Likes: wit, drive, intelligent conversation, craft beer, beautiful scenery.
Dislikes: feeling complacent, pasta leftovers.
Things I wish I were doing more often: hiking, getting out on the water during the summer, skiing in the winter, and reading.
I'm not much of a TV/movie snob, which is probably because I've seen surprisingly few shows that most people consider essential. Generally I'll wait for enough people to recommend something then binge watch it. No shame. For example: even though I'm current on Game of Thrones, I'm just starting Arrested Development. I KNOW.
My movie taste is pretty low key: I love action films, comedy, musicals, and the occasional cheesy rom com.
I'm also not much of a music snob. Top 40 is typically fine, but my go-to playlists typically center around indie music, pop, or jazz (with good trumpet playing, not new age crap).
Regarding food, I like experimenting in the kitchen but am always up for sushi or Thai and am perpetually in search of the perfect jazz cafe... anything with live music and stuffy, overpriced coffee that you can sip until it gets cold to justify taking up a seat.
