My self-summary
I'm me. What more needs to be said? :)

I'm a geek at heart, with the love of sci-fi, computers, video games, cartoons and the like. But I also enjoy a lot of non-geek activities like hiking, fishing, camping, BBQ's and generally hanging out with friends (though that last one definitely fits both geek and non-geek categories).

I tend to be rather shy at first, especially when it comes to women. But as I get to know someone I open up quite a bit and have even been accused of being the "loud one" on occasion in certain settings. My sense of humor is definitely bent in a sarcastic direction.

For many years I worked in IT but sadly realized that I had chosen that career path for all the wrong reasons. Friends and family kept telling me that because I was good at tinkering with computers, IT was the way to go. But I found that while I liked the tinkering, I didn't like the occupation. So, a few years ago I made a decision to undergo a radical career change and enrolled in law school. Having passed the CA bar exam (and now seeking employment as a full-fledged attorney) I am finding this to be much more to my liking. At least, I hope so :)

P.S. If you contact me here for legal advice or immediately start describing a legal problem you're having, I likely will not respond. I'm not on this site trying to drum up business, nor do I appreciate strangers wanting free legal services from me. Sorry, but apparently this has to be expressly stated.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to figure out what I'm going to do with all this free time suddenly dropped into my lap. After passing the CA Bar exam, I no longer spend hours upon hours each day studying.

While I haven't fully settled on what area of law I'd like to practice, I do know that I want it to be a field where I can actually help people in a grander scheme of things...representing faceless corporations or seeking money for a specific, single event aren't for me. Appellate law is appealing (excuse the tired pun) because it helps to shape future cases as well; wills, trust, probate also holds some interest, as it deals with people providing for those they love even after passing on; criminal prosecution helps to protect the community as a whole; environmental law has its obvious social benefits; immigration is a very underserved area. I really need to narrow it down soon.
I’m really good at
Math. I used to do division of polynomials in my head. While I don't really use that skill much anymore, I think it's really helped in my legal training as I can grasp logical concepts easily (though sometimes it's a hindrance because the law isn't always logical lol).

I'm also a fabulous listener. There have been accusations I'm a good cook & baker, too (a friend just informed me that I forgot to list "makes awesome raspberry bars" here). Oh, and I put the "pro" in procrastination.

Also, I'm super good at puting the seat down. Actually, I put the whole lid down. Every time.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably that I'm quiet/reserved. Though, as I said, this is typically just around people I don't know (or don't like). As I get to know someone, I'm a lot more open.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: To Kill a Mockingbird; Charlotte's Web; most of Terry Pratchett's novels; Tom Clancy novels.

Movies: Avengers; Serenity; Lord of the Rings/Hobbit; Iron Man; Star Wars (the original trilogy); Star Trek 2, 3, 4, First Contact & the reboots; Harry Potter series; Princess Bride; I've seen almost every comic book movie ever made; most Pixar flicks; Evil Dead/Army of Darkness; Braveheart.

Shows: I get very few TV stations right now (yes, stone-age viewing with an off-air antenna). But thanks to Netflix I'm somewhat keeping up with Castle, Burn Notice, Walking Dead, True Blood, Game of Thrones (oh how I wish I were able to see current seasons of those!). In the past, I've loved Firefly, Wonderfalls, Sliders, Dead Like Me, Big Bang Theory, Law & Order, Doctor Who, The Simpsons, How I Met Your Mother, Bones. I'm also greatly enjoying the relaunch of Cosmos.

Music: I can tolerate most anything except gangster rap. Mostly I stick to rock (Static-X, System of a Down, Rob Zombie, Bon Jovi, etc.) but also really enjoy Celtic (Flogging Molly, Wicked Tinkers, Gaelic Storm, Albannach, Celtica: Pipes Rock, etc.).

Food: I'm fairly carnivorous. I enjoy pizza, stir fry, Mexican, pastas. I like to cook & bake, though don't really like the cleanup so don't do it as often as I should lol.
The six things I could never do without
Family, friends, a book to read, access to the internet, hot water, good food. Really, I could survive for a short time (a couple weeks) without some of those, but they're all long-term necessities.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why so many people on OKC post pictures of their feet. Are foot fetishes that popular?
On a typical Friday night I am
If I head out, it'll be to hang with friends, go out to dinner, go to a local play, or a movie. I'm often a homebody, though, opting for a good book, TV or movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I took the Mensa admission test just for the fun of it. Yeah, I'm a nerd like that. And yes, I did qualify for membership, though I've so far opted not to join.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 30–45
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You find me interesting & think we'd hit it off :)

Also, please don't contact me if you're seeking legal advice. First, it's a huge turn off. Second, I'm on this site for personal reasons, not business; I do not mix business & pleasure.
