Something along the lines of Judd Apatow, Jon Stewart and Borat in a room together would probably sum me up . . . except when I'm at work, where such things might get me fired or held in contempt, and I have to launch into professorial mode.
Though suburban-raised and more city boy than country boy at heart, I definitely have come to appreciate the outdoors, be it Central Park or getting away from the concrete jungle altogether. I try to get to the gym when I can or go for a run in the park with my brother. While I enjoy getting lost in a great book, I generally prefer binge-watching a show on Netflix or catching the Rangers or Yankees game. My forays into cooking tend to be more for others than just myself and, admittedly, the quality is probably inversely correlated with following an actual recipe, but innovation has to count for something, right?
A few random likes: exploring neighborhoods in the city, hiking, cappuccinos, NYC history, road trips, playoff hockey, dark chocolate, museums, steakhouses, useless trivia, movies that really make you think, Israel, brewskies under a clear night sky, maps, debating whether to order key lime pie or tiramisu for dessert . . . .
