Seriously, I hope you are all doing well. I'm a Chicago resident, been living here nearly 10 years now. I am originally from the northern Illinois suburbs, where my parents still live. I went to both undergraduate and law school here in Chicago. I work downtown at a small firm. My cases vary but I practice mainly real estate and family law.
I'm kind of a big movie/video game nerd, though I don't spend much time playing video games anymore. I also enjoy watching and playing sports. I try to keep fit and I still play basketball at my college gym on a weekly basis as part of that.
I really enjoy traveling when I have the opportunity. I grew up partly in Japan and Hawaii as a kid before moving to Illinois. I have traveled around Europe a bunch, as recently as 2012 for six weeks. I would like to do some more local traveling like out to the US west coast soon.
I believe in giving back to your community. I used to be a lot more politically active but I still do legal pro bono work from time to time, which I find rewarding.
I'll leave the rest to your questions. I do want to put out there that I am aware that a lot of women in OkCupid get blasted with a lot of messages from creepy men. While utterly saddening, I hope it does not sour your opinions on other people on this site and your willingness to meet someone new.
