I moved to London three years ago after going to uni in the United States and working in Germany. It has always been my dream to live here - I fell in love with the place the first time I visited and am glad that I finally made it here (and I ain't leaving!).
I am a lawyer and work as in-house counsel at a bank. I enjoy all the things that make London such a great place (discovering new restaurants, pubs/bars, shows/concerts etc.) and would love to find someone to join in for these or show me some new things.
Other things I like or am interested in (in no particular order): The US (have lived there for a long time so has a special place in my heart), England (bit of an Anglophile), Australia, interesting conversation, good food, history, politics, G&T, Match of the Day, discovering new parts of London by bike, going to the gym, skiing, tennis, cooking.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a lawyer working in the legal department of a bank.
I’m really good at
1) I am quite social and tend to get along with people rather easily.
3) Cooking (or so I'd like to think....)
4) I am occasionally being told that I dress well (no, not by my mom).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Brother Karamazov, Crime and Punishment, Eugene Onegin, The Picture of Dorian Gray, Master and Margarita, Night, 100 Years of Solitude, The First Salute, Guerilla Tactics for Getting the Legal Job of my Dreams.
Movies: The Godfather, Goodfellas, Vanilla Sky, The Third Men, Mephisto, The Usual Suspects, Primal Fear, Meet the Parents (the first one).
Oasis, Blur, The Verve, Radiohead, Queen, The Fratellis, Franz Ferdinand, Travis, Chopin, Beethoven.
Food: everything really. Really like to try new things too.
Shows: Loved "The Tudors" (I like English history), Chicago PD (lived in Chicago for four years!), Criminal Minds, legal shows like The Good Wife, Boston Legal...reminds of law school in the US. :)
The six things I could never do without
My family, my friends, travelling/seeing/actually living in foreign
countries, the Internet, coffee, cheese, German bread (the only
type of German food I cannot live without ;) ).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I want to end up in my career (and in life generally). And
where the party is at next weekend!
On a typical Friday night I am
Most likely at some sort of happy hour/bar/pub/restaurant or
relaxing at home.
