I grew up in Boston. I went to college and grad school here in NYC. I lived and worked in Chicago for a few years in between. (I still have a number of friends there and try to get back once a year or more). While in Chicago, I worked in education: first, at a charter school; later at a non-profit. I'm also an AmeriCorps alum. Even though I work in the self-interested world of finance, I believe that I help people whatever their resources, plot out their financial future in pursuit of things more meaningful than financial stability. I'm taking the LSAT in December and expect to stay here in NYC while working on my JD. I studied philosophy and linguistics in grad school. I left my PhD program with an MA when I realized that I couldn't be happy as an academic migrant. I'm interested in the legal and policy implications of "implicit bias".
I recently moved from Park Slope to Fort Green. I like Brooklyn and choose to spend most of my free time here.
I'm a pretty plain-speaking, honest, assertive person. I think I'm socially versatile without being a shape-shifter or chameleon. I don't unrelentingly pursue intellectual topics. I have a diverse group of friends and am looking for someone who can comfortably mix with different sorts of people. Despite the matter-of-fact tone here, I'm a pretty active conversationalist. Also, I have a sense of humor. No. Really.
I like to run routinely but I'm by no means a fitness fanatic.
I'm looking for someone who is smart, reflective, independent-minded, and good-natured. Obviously, there has to be mutual physical attraction but other variables matter to me a lot too.
Send a note or indicate interest, if you want to learn more. My schedule is variable but I'll make time for the right person.
