In the daytime, I enjoy being outdoors and playing sports. I like playing basketball, running, biking, hiking, and camping. I recently ran a full marathon in San Francisco and I've done the annual Seattle to Portland bike ride a few times. I always enjoy a good challenge.
In the evenings, I really enjoy trying new bars and restaurants and just hanging out with friends. I try to go somewhere new each weekend if possible.
Traveling is something I'm really wanting to spend more time on. I want to see as much of the world as I can while I still have the time to do it. I try to do at least one big international trip every other year with some smaller trips in between.
Career-wise, I am currently fairly happy with where I'm at. I'm working in the aerospace industry which is something I've always wanted to be a part of.
- Cooking. My dad is a chef so I guess this was always a part of my life. I don't know if I can really say I'm good at it yet but I do enjoy trying to create new dishes. The problem is usually finding someone brave enough to test out my "experiments"...
- Photography. I've always enjoyed photography. It's been a while since I've spent a significant time with it but I've always felt like I had a good "photographic eye". I've considered doing it professionally in the past but it is kind of on the back burner for the time being.

Music: I listen to pretty much everything. It really depends on my mood. My all time favorite would have to be Tupac though.
I am not a particularly picky eater. I'll try anything at least once. Rice is one of my all time favorites (I know, it's kind of boring...I think of it kind of like jeans...it just goes well with everything!). I am also a fan of pretty much anything spicy.
When I'm not thinking about traveling...I also tend to think about just completely random things I could invent...such as...tear away tires, under ground tube transportation systems, adult onesie suits...I tell people that one day some of these ideas will actually become successful products! but if nothing else, at least I usually get a few laughs.
If I'm not out on the town, I also enjoy going to the gym for a work out or playing pick up basketball.
