Over the last couple of years I have become a fairly avid distance runner and I try to sign up for a couple of half marathons each year. At some point I plan to run the NYC Marathon. I enjoy cooking dinner at home sometimes and I read a lot, particularly books on science or business. I also go to a lecture series at the Natural History Museum. Neil deGrasse Tyson may or may not be my favorite person in the world. Like everybody else, I love to travel and have been to some interesting places around the world. Recently returned from an expedition to Antarctica and yes it was as awesome as it sounds.
Movies: Shawshank Redemption, Caddy Shack, My Cousin Vinny, Amadeus, Lean on Me, Bad Santa, Spinal Tap, Princess Bride
TV: Cosmos, Seinfeld, Big Bang Theory, Last Week Tonight, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee and anything on Food Network.
I listen to a lot of different genres of music from around the world. Some all time favorites are The Beatles, Phish, The Band, Bruce Springsteen, Led Zeppelin, Simon & Garfunkel, Mozart, John Coltrane, Alan Menken, John Williams scores and Irshad Khan (my sitar guru). More recent favorites are Tame Impala, Alabama Shakes, Flaming Lips, Dr. Dog, Moon Taxi, Anoushka Shankar, Oliver Mtukudzi, Azam Ali
Favorite food is definitley mac and cheese. I also love appetizers at Japanese restaurants.

I think sending a bunch of messages online is a waste of time. What is the point of having an online dating profile if you don't actually want to meet people in person. If you think I look interesting send me a message and lets grab a drink sometime! I can afford a couple hours to meet up and see if we hit it off.
