Pizza + cheap beer = the best day ever.
I can be very sarcastic.
I don't wear shoes unless I absolutely have to.
I can be quite handy. I like to build and fix things.

Music, Movies, and Books
I am a bibliophile. I love to read, mostly fiction and odd memoirs. A few of my favorites: Brain on Fire, Enders Game, Hard Boiled Wonderland at the End of the World, Possible Side Effects, The Night Circus, The World According to Garp, 11/22/63.
I can't resist a bad horror movie or a good suspense thriller.
I listen to mostly folk, punk, and rock music but, I also enjoy hearing music from around the world. Play me something I've never heard before and I will love you for it. The most interesting thing I've heard recently: Dakha Brakha.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
The Philadelphia Naked Bike Ride. It's self explanatory but I highly encourage you to Google it.
