My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
How do you summarize yourself in a sterile online text box? I refuse to measure out my life in coffee spoons. I contain multitudes. But I suppose you need something to go on:

I'm a science guy with a literary streak. I'm a lawyer whose only client is justice. I'm an aspiring academic, a competent climber, a lefty liberal, and an unreconstructed nerd. I like alliteration and I'm willing to bend the rules. I live for adventure, but I do it all for the cool photos. I have a strong sense of irony but I crave sincerity. Ironic, no? Maybe not.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My day job is figuring out the Right Answer to really hard questions. (Sorry, I have to be vague online.) I've been spending a lot of my off time at Planet Granite. I like climbing. And yoga. And fermenting things. And making my own bitters.

Good grief, I just moved back and already I sound like I'm straight out of Portlandia.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading a lot of books at the same time. (Really bad at: finishing them.) Cooking channa masala. Hyphenating compound adjectives. 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!
I have the male equivalent of Bitchy Resting Face. I try to remind myself to smile frequently. It's a hard lot in life.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I also listen to a lot of podcasts on the way to work. Currently in love with Invisibilia, Planet Money, and Amicus.
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
A pen
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.

Fitness. What to eat next, and when. What my workout for the day will be.

Clothes. For the first time in my life, my workplace demands more than dark denim and a button-down. Currently exploring the crazy world of trousers and texture.

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.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Ideally, pitching a tent.
