Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I enjoy collecting stories and perspectives. If life was a
cross-continental train ride, I'd travel at a leisurely rate, and
go on detours and tangents. I think some of the unhappiest people I
know are those who simply gun for their goals and do not stop and
smell the roses. Beauty and fulfillment are in those tender details
that lurk in the crannies of memory.
If you are intellectually curious and have an open mind and heart,
I will always be there to listen and support you. I have been told

help you figure out a game plan for your problems and who will
happily toast your successes and lessons!
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, which means that I have to develop good judgment,
so as to give people proper advice. Attorneys are not simply
litigious assholes (but we do drink a lot). Currently, I clerk at
the Supreme Court of New Mexico. I will return to a firm in Century
City by September 2015. For those who care, I anticipate most of my
work will involve patent litigation.
With that being said, just because I give good advice doesn't mean
I always make smart decisions. I think I have been referred to
before as a smart person who is really dumb. This may be because
that person has traveled with me and has put up with my spontaneous
decisions. Next place to rage through: the Balkans in September (I
did Colombia earlier this summer).
I’m really good at

be phased) and thinking of the big picture and how systems, both
physical and metaphysical, work.
