I enjoy reading (my kindle and real books), listening to all type of music, going to the gym, riding my bike, skiing, indoor rock climbing, museums, new restaurants, jazz in the park and going to happy hour with friends. I like good beer, red wine and whiskey/rum. I do not have a car so I walk and bike everywhere and oddly enough I do not miss having a car. That’s probably because I haven’t owned a car in a long time (perks of city living). I have two bikes and I use capital bikeshare - there is no better mode of transportation. I'm not very adept at describing my emotions or life philosophies in places like this but I promise you I’m a very inquisitive person and enjoy talking about most any subject. A few hours over coffee/beer is the best way to address these in-depth questions.
Getting around without a car. My bike is my car.
Being a reliable friend.
Pretending to be a good cook.
Succeeding at life.
Indoor rock climbing.
Movies: Godfather I and II, Garden State, Inception, Office Space, Quentin Tarantino movies, Rockey I-IV, Crazy Stupid Love, Batman Trilogy (Christopher Nolan), Goodfellas and lots of others. I’ll watch most any movie at least once.
Music: Way too many to list and ranges from 1950-2015. Number one of all time is the Beatles. Led Zeppelin, The Doors, CCR, CSNY, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Smashing Pumpkins, Sublime, Cold Play and Pearl Jam are near the top to. There is no genre that I can’t find at least a few groups that I like.
TV: Seinfeld and Arrested Development and by far my two favorite shows. I also enjoy Jeopardy. I do not have cable so I don’t watch that much TV (I do have Netflix though).
Food: Anything except Sushi but Mexican, Indian, Thai, Korean and Pho are some of my favorites.
Free time away from work
You want to explore the city with me
You want to go out for a beer/coffee
You want to go biking or indoor rock climbing
You think science is cool
Because I'm much more fun in person than my profile might suggest
