My self-summary
Southern transplant, lawyer, introvert (though the fun kind), urban planning/real estate geek. Natural habitat: coffee shop with newspaper. I've been told I am "chill," but that word is kind of ridiculous.
What I’m doing with my life
Lawyering and seeking out interesting people. Surviving winter, with an assist from Uniqlo.
I’m really good at
Deciding where to eat/drink/see music and navigating Philly to get there; defending much-maligned Philly institutions (SEPTA, L&I, PPA - everyone deserves an advocate); scrabble; taking things down a notch.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: Neutral Milk Hotel! In general, my tastes run mostly indie though I love seeing jazz/brass band shows as well and am up for most anything. I am always peppering friends with info about shows. Take the pressure off them - come see some music with me!

TV favorites: Deadwood, the Wire, Mad Men, etc. You know, the usual suspects. More recently, the second seasons of Fargo and the Leftovers rocked my world.

I'm hugely into Asian food, dating from a stint at a Japanese restaurant in a previous life. I guess I'm into food in general, especially of the comfort variety.

Reading: I read a ton of news - and try especially to stay up on local goings-on. I have also been enjoying Kate Atkinson lately.
The six things I could never do without
coffee (preferably iced), cheap ethnic food,
cats (preferably cared for by others, but I'll probably crack eventually and get one), friends, alone time, and the occasional visit to New Orleans, my home for 7 years. I'm committed to Philly now, and we’ve both moved on, but man that city is great.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The mysteries of online dating (that internal monologue is moderated by Aziz Ansari).
How to balance earnestness and humor.
How strange it is to be anything at all.
You should message me if
You want to go exploring in Philly.
You want company for a show.
You think meeting up would be fun. Or you just want to say hi :)
