I enjoy being active. During the summer, I enjoy biking and hiking in the metroparks. I'm not a huge fan of running, but I sometimes do it anyways. Apparently a glutton for punishment.
I have an intellectual bent. When in the car, I'm generally listening to NPR or a book on tape. Love the Picha Kucha events when they're in town. They are fantastic because format involves a feature a bunch of speeches by great speakers, with a Power Point deck on a timer. So if you don't like one of the speeches, no worries ... they're on a timer!
Favorite recent movies include the Grand Budapest Hotel and The Imitation Game. Books I've read this summer included the Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell, Capitalism in the 21st Century, Good Omens by Neil Gaiman & Pratchett, and The Martian. like to hang out with friends, and my family is very important to me.
Recently got a new dog, she's ridiculously fantastic when she's not trying to eat my shoes. Or pooping in the house. Or trying to chew off my arm... I hear they grow out of that eventually.
