I'm west coast living with a midwestern soul. I currently live in the bay area by way of Iowa and Atlanta. I also spent a year over in Spain and Chile.
I'm an avid cyclist and like to ride frequently. Due to my long commute I have become somewhat of a podcast junkie, and I usually have a good dose of This American Life, 99% Invisible, Planet Money, Radiolab, and Science Fridays queued up. My reading list is usually a balance of current events / news (read: Economist) with another novel or book in the background (currently: Infinite Jest). There are few things I enjoy more than getting out to a Giants game with some friends on a warm, Sunday afternoon.
I like my travels to be mostly unplanned yet full of exploration. I really like to get a sense of the environment, people, shops, and sights that new places afford.
