My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like my life but would like to have a special someone in it with me. I'm energetic yet fairly laid-back, and I always try to maintain a positive attitude. I'd like to think I don't sweat the small stuff.

I have a lot of interests—so I once overheard one friend say to another about me—and enjoy just about everything, including cultural events such as plays and concerts, as well as happy hours and sports events. I'm rather social and make friends easily.

About ten years ago I got into running and doing races, which has also led to triathlons and mountaineering. It's added a facet to my life that I really enjoy.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a lawyer who started my own practice in 2013. I've always liked to help others, and am glad I stumbled into law. I also write a weekly column for a website.

By the way, I wasn't always a lawyer: after undergrad I was a full-time waiter & bartender for five years, then spent two years as a social worker. It's been an interesting journey.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Networking. I've moved quite a bit, though only within the U.S., and it has forced me to make connections rather quickly. (My movelogue reads MEM-MIA-DC-LA-NSH-CHI-NYC-ATL-NYC-DC-NYC.)

I'd like to think it's my eyes or my smile, though I'm not really sure

Crue), The Kite Runner, Generation X, Brothers Karamazov.

Movies: all Woody Allen & Alfred Hitchcock, also Inception, Two Lovers, Spiderman 2, Bullets Over Broadway, Godfather I & II, Dumb & Dumber, Princess Bride, Empire Strikes Back, You've Got Mail, Evil Dead 2, Three O'Clock High, old film noir like Double Indemnity & Laura.

Shows: all Shakespeare, Tom Stoppard, and Neil Simon, also Avenue Q, Rock of Ages, The Abduction from the Seraglio, Candide, Spamalot, The Barber of Seville, Altar Boyz.

Music: at home I mostly listen to classical (unless I'm on my bike trainer, in which case I'm watching/listening to the latest hip-hop videos), but I also like Katy Perry, Rihanna, Snow Patrol, The Killers, Motley Crue, Amy Winehouse, Eminem, U2, Rolling Stones, Kanye West, Velvet Underground, 80s pop, 90s indie rock/alt, some jazz.

Food: I tend to eat healthy though that doesn't mean I'm a light eater by any stretch. I try to have a lot of carbs for breakfast and lunch and then have a moderate dinner. As far as ethnic foods go, I enjoy cuisines from Southeast Asia. Though I don't often have dessert (other than yogurt), a few years ago my pecan pie won a baking contest.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. smartphone
2. running shoes (right now I'm back to the Brooks Adrenaline series)
3. books, whether kindle or hardback
4. a comfy bed
5. facebook (I'm hopelessly addicted)
6. my composition book

Though I go without all of these things when I'm on a mountain, so I guess the only thing I really can't do without is a positive spirit.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
where the time went. Could I have an extra hour or two in the day please?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
attending some event, unless I have a race the next morning
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
While I like texting, emailing, and (especially) face-to-face encounters, I'm not really a telephone person except with my clients and my family. I'm more of a let's-go-ahead-and-meet person.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're positive, in good shape, are generally up for going out and doing things, and would potentially like to grab a coffee or a drink sometime. (And you're not weirded out that I don't drink.)
