Hobbies and Other Interests

BOOK OF THE MONTH

To be perfectly honest, this page should probably be titled “Book Every Month or So” but I’ll keep the current title with my goal in mind. My reading tends to be in the area of self-improvement and professional development. See the books I’ve read thus far.

CUISINE

This page contains links to my reviews of restaurants in the U.S. and abroad.  Primary locations are San Francisco, New York, London and Chicago.  All locations are in Chicago unless otherwise noted.  Read my reviews.

THEATRE, DANCE AND MUSIC

My cultural interests include theatre, dance and music.  I’m most often at the Goodman Theatre or the Joffrey Ballet.  I may even enjoy the occasional opera or concert.  Check out my event schedule for the 2013 performance season.

FAVORITE TED VIDEOS

Check out some of my favorite TED videos They range from ingenious, inspirational, informative and wildly creative.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.

TRAVEL AND ADVENTURE

I’m finally starting to give though to a bucket list which includes sky diving, driving a race car, swimming with sharks (in a cage of course – I’m not crazy!), travel to New Zealand and Finland (to sleep in an igloo).  See which adventure is up next.

MY CHOSEN CHARITIES

For the longest time, I avoided volunteering because I felt I did not have enough influence, could not donate enough resources, or otherwise just felt overwhelmed by the sheer size of the problem.  Thinking about making a difference one day at a time, one small act at a time put it into perspective and made volunteering much less daunting.  One small act of kindness is what I practice.  Although, I’m sure to surpass this quota everyday.   <link coming soon>
