My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Upbeat & easy-going. 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. I'm often the one organizing get-togethers and usually the last one to leave a party. I'm definitely not a wallflower - I love meeting new people and have the confidence and curiosity to get along with just about anyone. At the same time, I 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
~ parties, great & small
~ photography & other creative endeavors
~ wine bars & dives
~ Arrested Development marathons
~ classic literature & philosophy (my 2 majors)
~ mockumentaries (Hello Cleveland!)
~ making a fool of myself at karaoke
- 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
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an attorney in the public sector. I can't definitively say I will practice law forever, but my work is interesting, inspiring, and challenging, and whatever I do must fulfill these criteria.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
On my recent self-evaluation for work, I accidentally typed that "I am adept at defusing tense situations with humus."

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
~ red wine
~ the Great Outdoors
~ music
~ my family/friends/pets
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
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.

Why OKC keeps showing me thumbnails of naked male torsos under the heading, "You Might Like." (For the record: No likey.)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Having drinks with friends.
