By day, I'm a labor and employment/bankruptcy attorney in Washington, DC. By night, I’m also a labor and employment/bankruptcy attorney in Washington, DC, because of the insane hours I sometimes have to work. Given my practice areas, I have mixed feelings about our incipient economic recovery, but I like to think that human nature is dark enough that lawyers will always be in demand.
In my spare time, I love to read, particularly nonfiction. Having said that, I have been on a bit of a fiction kick lately, having conquered War & Peace and Moby Dick in the last year. I feel really ignorant if I miss an issue of the Economist and the New Yorker, and am addicted to my Kindle.
I try to work out a couple of times a week and see friends on the weekends. I take salsa lessons occasionally, and what I lack in technique I make up for in enthusiasm. I have a taste for science fiction; I know way too much about Star Trek and Battlestar Galatica and can debate the finer points of interstellar diplomacy and Cylon battle tactics. My current TV obsession is Mad Men and am almost caught up. I like going to historic sites and discussing politics.
