My self-summary
Upbeat, easy-going & fun-loving. According to a highly scientific personality quiz I took once on the Internets, if I were a breed of dog, I would be a Golden Retriever. A quintessential extrovert, I love meeting new people and have the warmth, confidence, and curiosity to get along with just about anyone. At the same time, I value a certain amount of time to myself. I also have a very cerebral side that I seek to balance with my more light-hearted side. I have always had diverse groups of friends to match my diverse interests and experiences.

I am extremely passionate about the things I care about -- my friends and family, my work, liberal politics, music, etc.

Here are some other things I love:
~ live music (esp. rock & blues)
~ the Great Outdoors
~ nerdy documentaries
~ mockumentaries (Hello Cleveland!)
~ wine bars & dives
~ parties, great & small
~ photography & other creative endeavors
~ Arrested Development marathons
~ Cards Against Humanity marathons
~ making a fool of myself at karaoke
~ classic literature & philosophy (my 2 majors)
~ watching soccer (go USA, Women's World Cup Champions!)
~ lazy Sundays
~ bulleted lists
And like pretty much everyone on here, my absolute favorite thing to do is travel and explore other cultures; I've spent time living in Africa.

I'm looking for someone who is kind, fun to be with, who is driven but doesn't take himself too seriously, and who knows what he wants from a relationship. Basically, I am looking for someone who's adventurous like I am, but who can also help make even the mundane moments into something adventurous and fun.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an attorney for the greatest City in the world :).

I spend a lot of time thinking about
The degree to which we control our own destinies; human nature; cosmology.

I wish that when I swore it came out in a British accent.

The number of transvestites I attract on this site (is it the Marilyn Monroe wig?).

Having drinks with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
