My self-summary
I'm not looking for anything romantic. In fact, I'm mostly on here to help my friend Matt review his dates (though I actually did my my match on here -- that's him in the photo). However, I'm always open to new buddies and friends -- can you ever have too many? In my experience, good folks are too far and few between so I'm always up for meeting new ones. So, if you see any similar hobbies or perspectives on life, feel free to drop me a line.
What I’m doing with my life
The latest project is paragliding -- I just got my P2 rating and had my first SIV course. I'm aiming to head to Columbia early next year to fly across it.

Here's a video of me doing my very first wing overs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jv2XX4b_sYI&feature=youtu.be

I'd love to find fellow folks that fly or are interested in learning as I see it becoming a permanent part of the lineup. It's also a good metaphor for me and how I approach life generally. If you think it's nuts or way too scary, we probably won't get along. But if you think it sounds exciting, a reasonable calculated risk and would like someone similar to join the journey, drop me a line!

I'm also working on paying the bills by building my own law firm with a friend and colleague -- we opened shop last year and it's been a very rewarding ride. It's not as stable as I'd like it to be yet, but it's given me an awesome work-life balance. Pays the bills nicely, finances fun stuff (like paragliding) while still giving me time to do that fun stuff!
I’m really good at
Learning and trying new things. Not necessarily good at mastering them all, but love to learn and try new things. I'm starting to look into buying my first house and think woodworking would be fun -- being able to make some of my own furniture would be pretty sweet. I try to find a good balance of being passionate while avoiding being reckless.
The first things people usually notice about me
Smile and smartass tendencies. Either that or how tall I am with heels (hitting over 6' with my most daring pairs).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too many to list. Here's a few: whiskey and red wine (but trying to open my mind to more whites too), Dune, Gone with the Wind, Wuthering Heights, Game of Thrones, Great Expectations, The Prophet
The six things I could never do without
Family, friends, love, adventure, learning and respect
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I've been, the lessons learned and where I want to go, both metaphorically and literally.
On a typical Friday night I am
No such thing as a typical Friday night. Could be mellow, cooking a nice meal, sharing a bottle of wine or two and a DVD or could be doing something totally off the wall like a Clown Burlesque Show (I love SF for this type of stuff--you literally can't make it up!)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Two of my favorite guilty pleasure movies are Willow and Labyrinth. I make no apologies about them -- just love the little people and David Bowie as the Goblin King -- doesn't get any better than that!
