Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a lawyer and a magician. You know, just like... well... ok I
can't think of anyone else right now, but it's fun and it's me. I
try to take both seriously, performing magic for corporate and
private parties (as well as creating new tricks to sell to other
magicians), and working for a great little law firm here in
Really, I'm still a bookish drama kid at heart who just really
wants to be on stage and really wants to find the right arguments
for the case.
And if it's the kind of thing you're interested in. I'm an ENFJ,
though on the border with ENTJ.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm back in the Bay Area after a brief tour of the East Coast. I
worked at a big law firm for a year in NYC, hated it, so I came
back to a firm I enjoy. We do mostly Intellectual Property law --
copyrights, patents and trademarks.
I pour my creative time in writing new shows and creating new
sleight of hand magic tricks. (Really, though, it's ok. You can
call them tricks. I don't care what Gob Bluth says).
When I'm not lawyer-ing or magic-ing, you can usually find me
watching sketch comedy or stand up, playing board games and card
games of a variety of wonderful awesomeness.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My absolute favorite books are:
Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius (I know it's "cool" to hate
on Dave Eggers, but hey, I just really liked the book),
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead by Tom Stoppard (yeah... I
know this is a play, but it's also a book on my shelf, so I'm gonna
go ahead and say it counts),
Catch-22 (I think most people don't read this cause it seems like a
stodgy old-timey boring book, but it's actually laugh-out-loud
hilarious and really well written)
Also, The Princess Bride, Visit From the Goon Squad, Extremely Loud
and Incredibly Close, The Great Gatsby, and anything by Kurt
I've started to suspect that all good TV is on the BBC:
Sherlock (is fantastic) (can't wait for it to start up
Doctor Who (an unabashed fan)
But then there's also Arrested Development, which just has no equal
(so US TV makes the list too)
I should also mention West Wing, Firefly, Psych, and Community as
I'm also a big theater fan, and some of my favorite shows
The Last Five Years
The Book of Mormon
Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson
Into the Woods
Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog
Aaaaaaaaaaand, let's go with some of my favorite Stand Up
Eddie Izzard (brilliant)
John Oliver (somehow his standup is way better than what he does
for the Daily Show)
Bo Burnham (making clever cool again)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. A deck of cards
5. Stand-up Comedy
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The difference in culture between New York and San Francisco and
how I can combine the open-minded-ness that is so freeing in SF
with the dedication to being the best in NYC that keeps me on task.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At a comedy show or hanging out with a group of friends. Also, I do
a weekly magic performance during happy hour on fridays, so there's

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to go adventuring in SF, or if you want to play some board
games, go to trivia night, or a comedy show.
Also, you should be aware that I'm currently in a primary
relationship with SeekingSJM, so that's something it's important to
be ok with. I think compersion and being GGG are important to any
relationship, and particularly for people who choose to be some
form of non-monogamous.
