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. And
it's not just like I do a couple of card tricks or read Bob
Loblaw's Law Blog. I perform magic for corporate and private
parties (as well as creating new tricks to sell to other
magicians), and I work for a great little law firm here in
I'm still a bookish drama kid at heart who can get stuck in a book
as easily as I can break into song walking down the street.
-I love a good abstract debate as much as I still love
-I've performed a couple of times at the Magic Castle (the actual
awesome place in Hollywood, not the incredibly-hilarious, but
definitely-an-exaggerated-parody Gothic Castle from Arrested
-I'm also a singer and improvisor (actually used to work for an
improv theater), though I haven't been doing nearly as much of that
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 have been all over the country, but I think I've finally found a
place to stick around. I grew up in San Diego then I went to school
at Stanford for about a gagillion years (did both undergrad and law
school there). So it wasn't until I was about 24 that I actually
broke down and bought an actual coat togo out east. I worked at a
big law firm for a year in NYC, and then moved up to Boston for a
clerkship. But now I'm back in the sunshine and familiar turf. I'm
starting up at a small law firm in San Francisco. Whew. That was a
pretty brief history of my life, but let's chat. There's probably a
detail or two I left out.
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 with an offbeat flair)
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
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
