I work at a politically progressive mobile phone company (ask me! It's kind of weird), but my background is politics, especially political data. Election night is possibly my favorite holiday.
Movies and TV: I actually prefer TV, especially The Wire, Buffy, Breaking Bad, Firefly, and my guilty pleasure of Archer. But I'm a big fan of the occasional midnight show at E Street.
Music: folk music, indie rock, and the occasional lapse into awful dance music. I'm a big fan of a good live show. Some all-time favorites are Josh Ritter, Dragonette, the Decemberists, and the criminally-underrated Harvey Danger.
Food: Not really a cook, but I'm a big fan of trying new things when eating out. Ethiopian is awesome!
