This is one of those things I find really impossible to fill out. How do you summarize yourself in a paragraph? I either feel like I'm saying far too little, or far too much. Grew up in Bay Area of California, spent time in the military (which I'm not proud of, I'm sorry if you don't like military guys, I don't either.) Got out and went to culinary school to do something I really enjoy. I'm not a 9-5 person, it's unlikely I ever will be. I know it's rough on the people I care about, but it's the reality of what I do, so I try to make as much time for people as I can when I'm not working.
I try to get out and do things with my time off, most of it spent with doggo these these. He deserves a pic here. I enjoy doing things like hiking, snowboarding, climbing in climbing gyms (I've never been to any real rocks), playing disc-golf, rafting, swimming, camping, going to standup, grabbing a drink (but not a big drinker) and eating in new restaurants (I'm waaaay behind up here), I don't like to go to the same places over and over. I don't smoke cigs but I do enjoy smoking weed. I love movies. I go to lots of them. I love music, but I never go to shows. I don't know why. I stay up way later than I should and don't get nearly enough sleep but I like having personal time away from work. Netflix is king during those hours. Naps on days off are amazing.
Movies - Just about anything, I'd incredibly hard to list out favorites because it's impossible for me to narrow down. Directors like Stanley Kubrick, Paul Thomas Anderson, Cohen Brothers, Christopher Nolan, Wes Anderson, earlier Tarantino..
I love goofy comedy just as much as I like musicals. Action movies less so...I prefer dialogue over explosions.
Shows - Standup comedy, almost any HBO series, Rome is one of my favorites, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Dexter, Walking Dead. Netflix series. Bob's Burgers, Rick and Morty, Southpark, Seinfeld, The Office.
Music - Almost anything. I shift what I'm listening to constantly. Taking off a list just because I feel like so much is excluded. Every decade, almost every genre. I have never been able to get into jazz. (teach me?) and I just can't stomach pop-country from the past 2 decades or so.
Food - Just about anything. I dislike tomatoes (it's a texture thing) and horseradish (gives me a bad headache just smelling it.) I've been eating a lot of sushi lately.
Podcats - this should be a section more people mention. I listen to Radiolab, Freakonomics, Sam Harris, Joe Rogan, Bill Burr, Stuff You Should Know, The Nerdist, Dan Carlin, Lore, The Moth
A really comfortable bed
Also: I wake up in middle of night thinking about the possibility I forgot to order enough eggs. Or cream. Or milk.
