My self-summary
A free-thinking, off-the-beaten-path trekking, poetry slinging, kindness giving, down-home genuine soul who's drawn to warmth, wit and lively debates about world affairs, social justice and the Sunday funnies, East African rhythms and West African blues.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Early morning hikes and backyard bonfire nights. Microfinance and human rights. Swimming holes and Benefit Corporations. How to be a better lawyer and advocate. A piece of land upstate to call my own and share with those I love.
On a typical Friday night I am
Going for a swim, dinner with family, drinks with friends, lost in a book or maybe just down for the count.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
C-SPAN over ESPN almost every time.
You should message me if
You're poetic, passionate, compassionate, have a warm smile, your own unique edge, and feel like saying hi.
The two of us
