I am a little shy about online dating but very open to meeting new people. I am a new lawyer, new to the West Coast, passionate about disability rights, very fond of cooking, traveling, coffee, yoga. I believe that kindness and sincerity are important and underrated. But I'm not so earnest that you want to die.
What I’m doing with my life
Learning a lot about how to be a lawyer these days. Also trying to figure out what my career and future will be like while also being good to myself and staying in touch with the world beyond work.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a lot and always have a hard time figuring out my favorites.

The six things I could never do without
Coffee, books, family and close friends, laughter, time to myself
On a typical Friday night I am
cooking a nice dinner, going out to eat or for a drink, going to a
movie. I have no qualms about staying in on the weekends --
although I go "out" (in the party-drunk-till the wee small hours
sense) very occasionally, I mostly prefer to be curled up with a
glass of wine and a movie, book, or friend.
You should message me if
