Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have a challenging and rewarding career, but I ultimately try to
define myself by my interests outside of work. I try to be active –
I love to run and bike outdoors whenever I have the opportunity.
It’s an excellent stress reliever and helps me clear my head, and
it’s a great chance to explore new neighborhoods (running/biking
the east and west river parks are terrific, but I find that within
the city grid is more interesting). I've run the marathon a few
times, and those were some tremendous life experiences. I highly
recommend everyone trying it once!
I’ve lived basically all my life in the NY area – I love it and
it’s hard to imagine experiencing life elsewhere. I love to travel
but one of my favorite things is the feeling you get when you see
the NYC skyline from the airplane or car when you first approach it
after a long trip away.
Like most people, I love good food, and I think it's one of the
best things about this city - always up for trying out new
restaurants and cuisines!
This may say something about my personality - on an ideal night out
with friends, I'd prefer a dive bar/pub, over a lounge, over a club
(in that order).
What I’m doing with my life

that, I'm an attorney.

Books – generally love to read, and I wish I had more time do so
beyond the daily papers/news websites. When I do find a good book,
I get pretty wrapped up in it and normally blitz through it
quickly. Recently read Born to Run, Unbroken, Moneyball &
Outliers. All time favorites include A People's History of the US,
Autobiography of Malcolm X, Counte of Monte Cristo, Slaughterhouse
Five, Catcher in the Rye.
Movies – generally like all types, although not a big fan of
sci-fi. Favorites are comedies and documentaries. Like ordering in
and watching movies from home just as much as going to the
Music – generally open to all types of music, but particularly love
90’s music (almost all genres from that era) & classic rock.
All time favorite bands/groups include the Beatles, Pink Floyd,
Queen, CCR, Guns N Roses, A Tribe Called Quest, Biggie, Weezer;
lately, I've been getting into Alabama Shakes, Mumford & Sons
and dubstep - weird list, I know...
Food – love good food and drink. I really enjoy a good meal,
regardless of type of cuisine, but a good & simply prepared
steak, Korean food & Japanese food are my favorites. For
breakfast, nothing beats black coffee and a baguette. Also love a
I was slightly obsessed with the podcast "Serial." I'm very curious
to see what story they cover for Season 2!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I could probably do without just about anything materialistic. But,
besides friends & family, I'd say the following are pretty
awesome to have:
- My bike
- Phone (sadly)
- My sportswatch
- the subway arriving just when you get to the platform
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
