Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I make my living, in large measure, engaged in oral and written
advocacy. This should not be difficult; however, I find myself at
somewhat of a loss trying to succinctly describe my self (what I
think, what I care about, what I do, what I want to do, what I like
and dislike...) in this kind of forum. It feels a little like a mix
of applying for a reality show and writing my own recommendation
letter for, well, the whole of me.
That said, a quick summary of me. I am outgoing, passionate,
extremely loyal to my friends and family, have an adventerous
spirit, funny (or so I am told) with both a goofy and dry sense of
I feel that life is far too short not to actively seek out new
experiences. I am the kind of person who could be dropped into a
room, city, experience, or country and find a way to entertain
myself and others.
While I (generally) have a satisfying career, it is not entirely
uncommon for me to consider other avenues (I stepped off the path
of academia and teaching to come to law). This does not mean that I
cannot commit; rather, I try to embarce the world as full of
I have a passion for travel and for experiencing new communities
and countries. Unfortunately, I can no longer take off for months
at a time, as I would do in the past.
I am equally comfortable going camping or dressing up for the
Arrogance, small-mindedness, obsession with the material, and
dishonesty do not interest me at all. Also, I am driven a little
crazy by slow walkers, especailly those in a group who will never
let you pass (as well as people who stand on the walk side of an
Reading what I have written above, I have to admit that it all
sounds disappointingly trite. Maybe not quite as bad as "...enjoys
long walks on the beach..." but... I write short stories (when I
have/make the time). hmmmm....
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Getting lost (seriously, but it is a wonderful way to find things
you were not looking for or, you didn't think that you were).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
You would have to ask them or, you tell me.

Food: Almost anything, really. I love to cook and I love to eat. I
will try, at leat once, almost anything (although I do not like
mushrooms, brussel sprouts - they taste like cabbage gone bad -
liver - and no, it is not how it is cooked, it is just not good -
tripe, haggis, and overly gelatinous things - the texture is just

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. books; magazines; newspapers;
2. the sun (not in a most life but d. audaxviator could not live
without it kind of way but in a I relish the bright sunny days of
summer kind of way);
4. my cat, Kepler (although it feels wrong to catagorize him as a
thing, which is why I have not included in my list friends and
6. gatorade (a recent addiction that I cannot adequately explain).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
why, despite my very best efforts, algae grows in my fish tank as
if i am trying to farm it; why so many lawyers confuse being an
assertive advocate with being an aggressive a**hole; why some
people do not appreciate that patchouli smells just awful.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There are far too many experiences to be had to fall into a routine
of the typical (although this may be a bit fanciful after a long
and brutal week of work!)
