Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I value perspective and understanding. I strive to live the
difference between "react" and "respond".
I've found that the path to vitality and happiness lies in my
ability to be vulnerable, and that having deep, meaningful
connections with others is what makes life worth living.
I have my own ethics. I find current gender roles and norms to be
rooted in history and fear. I think it's ludicrous that "men don't
cry" or aren't supposed to "show emotion" and that women are
described as hyper-emotional and irrational.
I know, I know . . . all that shit is really serious. I've got a
sense of humor, no doubt. Other people tend to bring it out pretty
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Embracing Act Two.
My greatest accomplishment so far isn't my law degree. It's not my
admission to the New York Bar. It's not a display of my physical or
mental prowess. It's not a relationship, an invention, or a company
My greatest accomplishment came out of my greatest disaster. A
period of mental collapse after I tried to start a law firm a year
out of law school.
My greatest accomplishment is that I know myself. Damn near
completely. And everything that has followed from that knowledge.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading and understanding people. Especially when I'm not wrapped
up in my own thoughts. It basically feels like a superpower
And I'm learning to use it for good. I'd rather empower than
Also woodworking, skiing, writing, and almost anything else I've
ever spent time and effort learning.
The first things people usually notice about me

All depends on the person I'm talking to. Also depends on me asking
people this question, which I've never done.

All time favorite: Pulp Fiction. I'm a real sucker for Dialogue.
After that, there's hundreds of great ones.
First and Foremost: The Daily Show. Thank you, John Stewart. I'm
actually a smarter, better person because I watch a 21 minute
comedy show 4 days a week. The Colbert Report works well too.
Aside from that:Game of Thrones, Bored to Death, Dexter, Boardwalk
Empire, Deadwood, Weeds, South Park, Nurse Jackie, United States of
Tara, Entourage, Eastbound and Down, Hung. Yeah, most shows on HBO
Music: Indie's great. I used to be more particular with my music,
but I've gotten lazy. Bluegrass is a current favorite.
Food: Anything and everything. Thai, Indian, Mexican, Chinese,
Sushi. Steak (rare).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
 Kala (my dog), at least she has half her life ahead of
 The internet (except when i'm in the wilderness);
 Scenery/peace and quiet. Yes this counts as one thing. Large,
loud cities are not for me;
 Coffee; and
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The Buddhist perspective of "No Self" and how it fits with my
perception of the world. It makes writing dating profiles
absolutely maddening---who am I if the idea of "I" is an illusion
in the first place?
Don't worry . . . I'll be happy to provide examples & context.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Drinking/Conversing/Game Playing/Movie Watching/Working.
I don't have a typical Friday night. Also, I don't do all those
things at once.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Here . . . I wouldn't know where to start. But I'll answer any
question honestly in person.
