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, but I don't know too many people up here (recently moved into the area from San Francisco) so sometimes I end up staying inside more than I should. 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, grabbing a drink and eating in new restaurants, I don't like to go to the same places over and over.
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 - Almost any HBO series, Rome is one of my favorites, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Dexter, Walking Dead. The TV I do watch are like the books I read...long series with a good story. I very much dislike reality TV.
Music - Almost anything. I shift what I'm listening to constantly. Some of my absolute favorites though: Mozart, Edith Piaf, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Queen, Led Zeppelin, Billy Joel, Tool, They Might be Giants, James Taylor, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, the Ink Spots, RATM, Bob Dylan, Amy Winehouse, Boyz II Men, Mumford and Sons, Carly Simon, Mastodon, Die Antwoord, Caravan Palace, Nekrogoblikon... the list goes on forever.
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.
