I'm an adventurous person that likes to travel, eat good food, make music, read good books, and learn new things. I spend a month each year living in New York City and have traveled through Europe and driven across the USA. My favorite band is Pavement and I'm currently working on writing songs in that genre. So far I have 4 or 5 that I am pleased with.
I enjoy reading books by Kurt Vonnegut, Jeffrey Eugenides, David Sedaris, William Styron, David Foster Wallace, and others. I also love reading The New Yorker on my hammock.
I love cooking, growing my own food, and eating at great restaurants. I have tons of cookbooks in categories such as Italian, Indian, Mediterranean, Chinese, Mexican, Vegetarian, Celebrity Chefs, and Famous Restaurants. I also have a large garden of vegetables. (Where I live there are gophers so I had to dig over 100 large holes to put gopher baskets in. I'm glad that is over with!)
I play indoor soccer twice a week and miss playing baseball. I'm a big Padres fan but it's not important to me if others are.
My biggest passion is music. I've played violin and guitar in bands and have had the pleasure of recording music with some great artists. Currently I'm most interested in writing and performing my own songs.
I own lots of CDs and have extremely varied tastes. (Rock, pop, jazz, blues, traditional country, reggae, folk)
