I was born overseas (in Germany) but I grew up in a small town in NC. I always knew I wanted to live in NYC and after failed attempts to come here for college and grad school I finally moved here last November.
I try to be curious about the world around me. I knew I grew up in a pretty sheltered place but I was lucky enough to be able to travel abroad a lot during college. I've slowed down on the international travel in the past couple of years but I want to get back into it.
I like to think I have a great, if at some times inappropriate sense of humor. "South Park" is a good representation of my sense of humor.
I really like music. If I don't have my iPod with me on the subway I feel naked. I probably go to at least two or three live shows a month.
Movies: "Love Actually"; "Inception"; "The Dark Knight"; "American Beauty"
Books: "The Brief Wonderous Life of Oscar Wao"; "Free Food for Millionaires"; "One Day"; the Harry Potter series; "On Beauty"' "The Red Tent"; A Song of Ice and Fire series
Music: I know the cliche answer is to say "everything" but its true. However hip-hop probably gets the most rotation on my iPod playlist right now.
Television: "Homeland"; "Mad Men"; "A Game of Thrones"; "Gossip Girl"; "True Blood"; "Daria"; "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"; "Simpsons" (seasons 3 thru 8 are classic television); "Chappelle's Show"; "Breaking Bad"
You want to try something new. I have a long list of things I want to do in NYC that I need to tackle.
