My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
In person, this might take me a few hours - here's the abridged version. I try my best to attack life. I see myself as one who takes every opportunity in front of me, attempts to make the most of it, and continues to build myself up to where I want to be. To illustrate, I was once a boy of modest means from Small Town, Arkansas and, now, I'm a man living in the best city in the world and doing a job I love. I had no idea I would end up here. What I love about the future is that I have no idea where I'll end up, but I'm excited as hell for the journey.

I'm looking for someone who is not overly cynical. Someone who, though having faced the trials that come with living a full life, has been able to cling to her idealism. Someone who is nice (and doesn't find that word offensive) yet strong. Someone with an equally strong mind and heart. You know...perfection (kidding).

Other tidbits: I love my family and friends (though most are too far away!), I was a Peace Corp volunteer in Paraguay (this changed my life more than any other experience before or after), I'm liberal, I'm always up for an adventure, I love to write/play music, I love to dance, I love scotch (down into my belly)...okay, I have to save something for the first date.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Beginning my career as an attorney and enjoying the honeymoon phase of my life in New York (does that ever end? I hope not.).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
working my ass off. I work hard and I play hard as they say.

I used to consider myself a musician, but it's not so at the center of my life at the moment. I hope to change this soon.

I'm good at living life! Oh, and I do one of the best robots you have probably ever seen. I challenge you to a dance off.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

you want to. Especially if you appreciate the Robot. You should also message me if you are honest to a fault and enjoy honest, blunt conversations and discovering the truth.
