My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an armchair economist, an avid outdoorsman, an alright chef, an aspiring academic, an ardent rock climber, and an awful banjo player.

In my day job, I'm a lawyer. Kind of.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In a previous life, I was a computer scientist at a small semiconductor firm out in the west suburbs. I didn't particularly care for my job, I loathed the commute, and I had that millennial urge to "make a difference in the world." (I mock, but it's self-mockery.) So I left to go to law school back East.

Now I'm back in PDX, and I love my new job! (Can't say too much about it here.) And I get to live on the east side this time! I live next door—literally—to a coffee shop, I get to bike to work, and there's like a dozen places within a five minute walk of my house that I want to check out. And I'm a fifteen-minute bike ride from PRG. So I'm rediscovering Portland, and it's pretty awesome.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking channa masala. Spotting a misplaced en-dash. Driving in the snow. Building a bomber anchor. Mixing a Manhattan. Picking a restaurant. Making friends with cats. Planning a cross-country road trip. (Seriously, ask me about my drive here.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
One time a friend of a friend couldn't remember my name, so she referred to me as "the man with eyebrows that could kill." So there's that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

TV Shows:
—Orphan Black is my current best-show-I've-ever-seen. I've only seen the first season, though, so don't ruin anything for me.
—House of Cards
—How I Met Your Mother
—Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
—Stargate: SG1

—Edge of Tomorrow
—How To Train Your Dragon II
—Brother's Keeper
—Don Jon

Music: Eclectic. I picked up the banjo while I was studying for the bar, so lately, lots of Mumford & Sons, Trampled by Turtles, Alison Krauss & Union Station, Nickel Creek, etc.

I also listen to an awful lot of NPR's Planet Money podcast.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Two good books—one fiction, one nonfiction
Learning constantly
Feline company
My water bottle
An adventure on the horizon
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Traveling. Climbing. Preferably, both at the same time.

Constitutional theory. IP law. Privacy law. I want to be a law professor eventually, and these will probably be the areas in which I write.

Recently, I've been thinking about macroeconomics and cryptocurrencies.

How to work on my flexibility/mobility. I've had a fair number of injuries and the recovery seems to be getting harder and harder, so now I work on prevention.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This whole late-20s thing is a little disconcerting.
