Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I treat cities like giant scavenger hunts, and I'm always
astonished by the myriad ways in which people create beauty and
make me laugh or smile. I also love hiking national parks and want
to learn to scuba dive.
I love to cook, but I can go months without making the same dish
twice because I'd rather try something new. I'll probably steal
bites from your plate at restaurants.
I'm a proud nerd. I collect math jokes. I'm likely to spew out
facts about insect mating rituals, but you don't want me on your
trivia team because I know nothing about pop culture. I revel in
language, love board games (especially those that play in words),
and will surely kick your butt on Words With Friends.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a domestic violence lawyer. In my free time I study American

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: The Time Traveler's Wife, Everything Is Illuminated,
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Middlesex, Gut Symmetries, the
Harry Potter series, anything by Kurt Vonnegut, The Little Prince,
anything by Dr Suess. (I have a deep appreciation for children's
literature.) I love to read, but law school makes it hard to find
time for joy-reading.
Movies: I see astonishingly few movies. Most people who are getting
to know me decide they need to make me a list of movies I must see
so that I can 1)be truly human and 2) carry on a pop-culturally
literate conversation. No one has ever actually made that list. If
given a choice, I prefer live theater to movies any day.
TV Shows: The West Wing, 30 Rock, Game of Thrones, The Big Bang
Theory, X-files, Criminal Minds, Planet Earth.
Music: Mostly folk.
Food: I love fruit of all kinds and in all contexts. I munch on
fruit all the time and love to find ways of including it in savory
dishes. I love veggies, too, and have been known to convert those
who think they dislike veggies into people who ask for second
helpings of Brussels sprouts. I have a terrible/terrific sweet
tooth and am a sucker for cookies. I love spices, not just for heat
but for depth of flavor. I love to try out new dishes, new
cuisines, and new recipes. When I was in Africa, I ate both mopani
worms and giraffe meat. In short, I love food.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Always know where your towel is.
Nah, I'm certainly happy I have the following in my life: my dog,
the change of seasons, spices, farmers markets, comfy blankets, and
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Linguistics, access to justice, gender politics in and outside the
home, what I'm making for dinner, what interesting events I can
watch/attend/participate in, and whether I'll ever get a job I like
as much as the one I left to go to law school.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Testing out a new recipe. Want to be my guinea pig?

I often still sleep with a teddybear from childhood.
