Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have a positive, upbeat, and energetic attitude. My interests are
wide-ranging and ever-expanding. I am eclectic, political, and
passionate with a taste for the physical and sports to intellectual
pursuits. My work focuses on injustice and righting wrongs. I still
have that East coast attitude (my upbringing) with West Coast (and
Eastern) sensibilities - tolerant, easygoing, happy, and open.
Looking for somebody who is prepared to join me on this adventure!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Attorney, drug reform activist, entrepreneur, musician, and parent.
I have a thriving civil rights law practice that feeds me
intellectually and spiritually. I work nationally on drug and
criminal justice reform that dovetails into my advocacy for civil
rights. Playing my violin as much as possible with grassroots
musicians. Enjoying watching my 2 daughters blossom - one in
college, the other still in high school.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

One Hundred Years of Solitude, Groundhog Day, almost all music but
particularly jazz, reggae, fusion. Slightly obsessed with the music
of my youth - Crosby Stills Nash, Dylan, Pure Prairie League, James
Taylor. Voracious reader. Still talking about "Team of Rivals" and
just finished what may be the most significant book I've read in
years, "Sex at Dawn." I am an omnivore but would eat curried
vegetables every day.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Relaxing at home or spending time with friends. While not a sports
junkie, I do admit to having a thing for baseball so if the Giants
(or Red Sox) are on TV, I will take a whole 3 hours to watch the
game (I don't watch TV otherwise). I prefer to save my party energy
for Saturday afternoons and evenings. If the question is what do I
like to do to kick back, then I have a lot of answers - head out
with friends for a drink, play music, listen to live music, cook up
a storm with great wine and friends. Or sometimes, just read my New
