Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Writing about yourself is tough...Lets see - I grew up outside NYC,
went to college in the northeast and law school here in New York. I
lived abroad for several years in Europe and in Hong Kong (though
no cantonese) and these were great experiences that let me travel a
lot. But of course there is still plenty to see. South America for
one, macchu pichu of coure and maybe costa rica (been to Belize and
Nicaragua)) I am curious about a lot of different things - I read a
lot, mostly non fiction, but also fiction - quality and silly - if
someone recommends it. And I have recently become addicted to 30
Rock. Can't explain it. Funny show. Such a bummer it ended. I need
a new show.
I get to the gym pretty often, depending on the time of year and my
motivation level (I swim, and sometimes run and play squash). And I
don't have one yet, but someday will get a dog. People describe me
as genuinely nice (at least to my face:)) Which I am. But I can
have a sarcastic edge and wit if I sense pretension, phoniness or
downright stupidity. There, I said it.
I don't believe in keeping up with the Jones's - you should do what
you want to do. I am somewhat into art - painting mostly. It was a
real passion for a while. I love music - going to shows is a lot of
fun. My taste in travel leans toward the adventurous side.
Developing world, ruins. That said, I would never say no to Paris
or Rome. I listen to NPR and watch the Daily Show. I am socially
liberal and fiscally conservative. (But I dont think the government
should take down stop lights and let the market sort out traffic).

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Depends. Sometimes home on the couch with a book or the TV. Usually
out to dinner or drinks with friends. Once in a while at the gym.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Not too much; isn't that why things are private - you have to get
to know someone first?
But wait - I can confess I sometimes watch Fashion Police.
Sometimes. Joan Rivers is so funny.
