My self-summary
So, instead of listing some adjectives to describe myself, I thought that I’d list some “fun facts” instead.

- When XPN did its countdown of the 885 greatest songs of the new millennium, I’d seen over 40 of the bands live in concert. My favorite venues in Philadelphia are World Café Live and Union Transfer. If you have any good band recommendations, I’d love to hear them!

- According to Goodreads (a great website for any book lover), I read 22 books in 2015. I like to read crime fiction (e.g. Elmore Leonard, Michael Connelly) and classic pulp fiction (e.g Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett), but I also enjoy historical nonfiction about topics that interest me (e.g. survival stories, natural disasters, brilliant people).

- I went to at least one Phillies, Flyers, Sixers and Eagles game in their most recent seasons. I also get excited for following annual events such as the Masters, the NCAA basketball tournament and Wimbledon. Honestly though, I enjoy playing sports even more than I enjoy watching them.

- I’ve been to four European countries (England, Spain, Poland and Greece) and I would love to visit more, especially Iceland and Italy. Even though it may not be as exotic as visting a foreign country, I’d also really enjoy seeing the Pacific Northwest for the first time.

- In 2013, I got my 2nd graduate degree (J.D. and LLM). I’ve been practicing law since 2007 and currently live and work in the city. Work is the vehicle that allows me to pursue the other interests that I listed above.

Well, there you go. That’s just a little about what I’ve been up to recently. I’m definitely interested in finding someone who has their own interests and passions, whether they’re like mine or not. Do you think you'd be interested in chatting sometime over drinks? Or maybe going to a fun or interesting event in the city?
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to realize its potential.
I’m really good at
Knowing when to gloat and knowing when not to.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm a fairly boisterous guy, so I would have to say they hear me before they see me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - Siddhartha, Ishmael, Old Man and the Sea and books by Elmore Leonard, Tom Wolfe, and Thich Nhat Hahn. I like nonfiction too.

Shows - Breaking Bad, Dexter, Mad Men, Californication, GoT, Walking Dead, Shameless, etc.
The six things I could never do without
I think I could live a pretty Spartan lifestyle. But high on my list would be running water, air conditioning, supermarkets, sports and books. I guess the internet is pretty dope too.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The nature of our existence as human beings on the planet earth.
On a typical Friday night I am
Not in my apartment.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
We can discuss this in person, if you'd like.
You should message me if
You might be interested in meeting up for a drink and having a fun and engaging conversation.
