Physical activity keeps me clear and grounded. Bikram yoga and summer lap swim at McCarren are my favorite routines; thanks to an awesome trainer...I can probably do more pushups than you. But nothing compares to hiking somewhere beautiful or hot, fun, sweaty dance party.
TV faves: The Wire, Sesame Street, Breaking Bad, Mr. Roger's Neighborhood, Game of Thrones, Thundercats (Ho!!), Louie...
Love love love music of all types especially if it's funky, soulful and sometimes minimal. I grew up on hip hop, bluegrass and classic rock. Some recent artists I dig: SBTRKT, The XX, Reggie Watts, Little Dragon, Nneka, Kishi Bashi, just got my mind blown by Bombino. Rebirth Brass Band forever! Fela and anything in the afrobeat vein brings on a serious attack of St. Vitus Dance.
Movies? I'm missing the indy spirit of the 90s / aughts. Gotta love Coen Bros, anything Charlie Kaufman, PT or Wes Anderson, David Lynch, Tod Solandz, Kubrick, Gondry, Miyazaki, Almodovar ...Fellini on a rainy day when I'm missing Italia.
Fully recovered from that silly college notion of vegetarianism. I love to eat good, regional food especially when traveling. I like to connect to where I am through the senses without limitation. I'm unashamed of loitering in the kitchens of friends with the culinary gift and love trying out new tricks on my own (especially when made from stuff I grew on my fire escape). My friend, "I love cooking for you because you look like you enjoy it so much!"
A trip to look forward to.
A variety of delicious foods at my disposal.
and, damn it, my computer.
You live in NYC. You're not just passing through and are looking for something more than a random hookup.
