I'm an American currently living in Beijing. After working for a few years I went back to school in New York to get my J.D. (law degree) and then came to Beijing to study Chinese law for a year. Now I'm working in a law firm in Beijing and so far I like it.
Before law school I was a software developer and I worked for a year in microfinance. I’m still trying to figure out how to bring this more technical side of me back into my life. I also miss doing math so I want to weave that in somehow as well.
I’m a pretty nerdy and geeky guy but I also like to get out and do stuff. I enjoy talking with people and exploring ideas with them. Be warned: if a debate interests me I can get a bit intense about it; not angry but just intense in the sense that I will want to use the debate to dig deep into the ideas involved.
I enjoy traveling. I’ve been to a number of countries and there are many more places I want to go. I enjoy checking out the sights but I also try to meet some locals or other vacationers if possible at bars, coffee shops, etc… Most people are friendly.
