I am a smartass. The pleasant kind. Though born and raised in the fine state of Tennessee, I always wanted to escape the chicken-fried clutches of the South. This led me to a midwestern law school, and after discovering it was pretty much the same old same old there, I moved to California to start a career as an attorney. After a stroke of good luck, I got hired out of nowhere for a firm in Vegas that does all kinds of cool work in the fields of intellectual property and First Amendment law. It's good stuff.
I am an unabashed nerd, with a love of video games, comics, anime, theatre, and campy movies. Chocolate also occupies a large space in my heart. Other hobbies include incredibly silly dancing and fervent argumentation.
I am a good conversationalist with a hefty mound of snark, accompanied by a willingness to speak on almost any subject, whether or not I have any knowledge of it. I can appreciate a good time in any form, be it dancing, conversation, watching old movies, or singing incredibly bad renditions of 80s power ballads.
Also, my Marklar is huuuuge. Like, you have no idea.
Also getting acquainted with Las Vegas now that I actually have some amount of time to enjoy the place.

2). Whether the current trend of intellectual property proliferation will be reversed within my lifetime.

I like women who are smart, sharp-tongued, gorgeous, nerdy, ambidextrous, precogniscient, and possibly prosopagnosiatic. And those who want to both pet and not pet Shcrodinger's cat.
