THINGS I LIKE
Here is a list of all the movies I’ve seen that have been released since 2016. My all-time favorite movie is Forrest Gump.
I read a lot of books across a lot of different genres. Fiction, non-fiction, poetry. My all-time favorite author is Stephen King and my all-time favorite book is “The Stand”. Here is an updated list of what I’ve been reading lately.
Seeing the world is an experience that constantly gives me perspective and an appreciation for the vastness of nature and the variety of cultures that inhabit the earth.
During my day job I work in a fast-paced ad agency helping Fortune 500 clients strategically solve complex digital and social challenges.
I’m happiest on a hiking trail that will take me to a beautiful vista, a roaring waterfall, a hidden cave, or a forest of trees.
My current areas of interest are in historical materialism.

She’s just the best.
10. Random Trivia
I watch Jeopardy!, I play bar trivia… my brain is filled with a lot of mostly-useless information.
I like old maps, new maps, even Google Maps. I can stare with endless fascination at a detailed map.
There is something that makes me giddy about lists. I’m constantly writing lists whenever I can.
