Long Story Less Short: After living my first 24 years in Minnesota I moved out to the west coast (Los Angeles) to pursue work. I found a job as a TV/movie critic for an online publication, and worked there for seven years. A few years ago the job promoted me up to San Francisco, and I spent too much time working and not enough taking in SF culture. Recently I just transitioned out of a great job making sports video games, to a major tech company which will remain nameless. With my new hours am finally starting to feel like I'm at home in the city... which has led me to look for someone to join me taking in the sights.
What I'm really not good at: Creating an OKCupid profile.
Movie: Godfather, Singin' in the Rain, Rocky, Rushmore, Jurassic Park, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Once Upon a Time in the West, and South Park. Favorite movie I've seen recently movie was Ex Machina. But when it comes to movies I could watch over and over again, I'd have to say The Princess Bride.
TV Show: The Wire, Game of Thrones, Parks and Rec, 30 Rock, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Breaking Bad, Battlestar Galactica, and Arrested Development.
Music: I listen to just about everything except modern country. My favorite albums over the past couple years though are "Random Access Memories" by Daft Punk, and "Dear Science" by TV on the Radio. Though I have a soft spot for old English rock bands like The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Queen and such.
Food: Sushi, Chinese, and Indian.
Non-sports related: the concept of social justice, the state of our country, what it will be like when every car on the road is self-driving, where would my ultimate retire spot be,should I do a 5k this year?, how can I spoil my nephew today?, where is the line between being a chivelrous gentleman and respecting the feminist ideal when on a date?, what TV show should I catchup on next?, and what should I do for my next vacation.
Oh, and if you can help teach me how to use my new DSLR camera I would be eternally grateful.
