When his cats grant him freedom, he enjoys rooting for his favorite teams, the Cubs, the Bears, the Angels, and Chelsea Football Club. As both his Undergraduate and Master’s Thesis were on food, he also enjoys cooking, eating, and eating more. When at home, he enjoys watching Star Trek, James Bond movies, and reading pretty much anything he can get his hands on. He loves to travel, especially in Europe.
In the not too distant past, Elliot trained to become a professional Tuba player and met the Dalai Lama, though not simultaneously. Ask him about it.
