I just moved to LA from Boston and I think I may have always been a west coast person and not known it. As I write this, New England has just been hit with it's 3rd blizzard in 4 days. So I think I made some good life choices.
I'm a mechanical engineer working on a giant telescope and a wannabe creative type. I am always doing some kind of crafty project. When I lived in Boston I was an improviser and I am slowly trying to get into it again out here. Right now I am taking classes at UCB.
I love to bike and I am sad that LA is not as bikeable as Boston, but I am adjusting. I also love hiking and getting outside as much as I can. If you want to bike around LA or hike Griffith park I am your dude.
I have been overwhelmed since moving here at all the new stuff to do. I am slowly acclimating myself and would appreciate it if anyone wanted to show me around.
Here is a short list of favorites -
Movies - The Fifth Element
Shows - Anything by Joss Whedon
Food - All of the foods
Music - Right now I am listening to a lot of electronic music but I have a pretty broad taste. My favorite band is m83, and I will insist I liked them before they were popular even though that is an incredibly hipster thing to say.
You want a new friend to grab a drink with or go do something fun.
You want someone to help build you a bunker to help ride out the Trump years in.
