I'm a friendly and eccentric guy who is eager to engage anyone in
lighthearted discourse. I often exhibit a clever and irreverent
sense of humor which masks my compassionate streak. I'm frequently
looking for an outlet for my creativity.

What I’m doing with my life
I'm an attorney currently in general practice in the Central West
End. I'm also renovating my home, getting in better shape, and
learning German. Usually twice a week I attend pub trivia.
I’m really good at
I'm often described by friends as fun, hilarious, and ridiculous.
I'm very quick witted and always ready with a quip which is
frequently pertinent to the topic at hand and sometimes appropriate
for the setting and company. I've been told I'm a great cook and
people seem to be enthusiastic about eating the results of my
efforts. Let me know if you have any good recipes.
The first things people usually notice about me
Above my left forehead I have a shock of white hair that has been
expanding since high school. Besides that, I'm a bit notorious for
joining the conversations of complete strangers when they are
discussing an interesting topic or are mistaken about something.

The six things I could never do without
friends - They are the tangible proof that I love the world
and the world loves me.
books - I've been dealing with a backlog of books I have
started reading. Currently eleven.
modern communication - Instant information and
correspondence are foundational to our current culture.
new ideas - They're everywhere.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Sometimes I'll start laughing for what probably seems like no
reason at all to an observer. Often, I'm amusing myself with jokes
which, while hilarious, often require a broad range of specific
knowledge to appreciate.
When I use a word more frequently and then a few weeks later I
start noticing it being used everywhere, it makes me wonder if I am
responsible for popularizing it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Getting together with a few friends or looking for a trivia event
You should message me if
you would like to ask me a question and you feel like it. I'm not
I prefer being around people who are expressive, warm, and direct.
If you are comfortable with sometimes off-kilter humor and share
some of my interests, I'd love to hear from you.
