My self-summary
My mother never let us win at board games when my brothers and I were children; that changed everything,
So did the worm dissection in 7th grade.
There is a good chance I will beat you at any given competition not involving ball sports; but if you should return the favor, I will find you irresistibly attractive.
The season I won the state championship mile race in high school made for a better accolade; the season I missed the state championship mile race due to injury sustained in the course of basket ball mascot duty, well, that made for a better story.
Other than dressing up as a giant, red bird, other personas included Pinocchio and a bare-chested Polynesian boy singing a French duet in South Pacific.
But don’t ask me to tell you what the French lyrics meant.
And don’t ask me to navigate the roads without a GPS
(actually, you probably shouldn’t ask me to navigate the roads WITH a GPS either)
But do ask me about my character and loyalty: I’ll tell you that I’m a die-hard Detroit Lions fan—‘nuff said.
And do ask me about my bookshelf: The Aeneid, next to the Book of Common Prayer, next to Fifty Shades of Gray (don’t worry, two truths and a lie! I mean, who would have the Aeneid on their bookshelf, right?)
So, I can be a bit sarcastic, but I’m not a cynic
An aesthete rather than just an intellectual
An athlete, but not a jock
A singer who doesn’t know any of the words
A dancer who doesn’t know any of the steps
A Christian who does his best to live faithfully, but who is in need of more grace and mercy than he realizes.
Somewhere I have an unfinished poem called Homo Imago Dei in Virtute
Somewhere I also have a key to my safe that I hid in such a super secretive location, that I have no idea where it is.
Somewhere there is a babe-a-licious sweetheart of a lady with a pinch of sass (or perhaps several pinches), who is part goof, part geek, part gorgeous (actually, very gorgeous!), and who knows how to push my buttons. If she has any idea where I put that stupid safe key, then I'll know she's the one.

(....don't worry, the Aeneid and the Book of Common Prayer are good buddies on my bookshelf....)
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a lawyer. Doing justice on a good day; on a bad day, just writing sentences that are at least legible.
I’m really good at
Listening, telling stories, working my butt off
The first things people usually notice about me
My hearty laughter!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Bible, Aftershock, Desiring the Kingdom, A Severe Mercy, Proper Confidence, Walk Two Moons, Lord of the Flies, Macbeth, King Leer, Flowers for Algernon, Dances with Wolves, Tess of the D’Urbervilles, The Tain, Greek Tragedy, Frankenstein, Martian Chronicles, C.S. Lewis, Velvet Elvis, Blue Like Jazz, Life of the Beloved, My Antonia

Shows: tv? I’ve forgotten what that is. No, I like my Detroit Lions, and I watch the tube typically only when other people are. The Daily Show or the Colbert Report are good. Generally I'm with Ray Bradbury on this--I prefer to engage life actively rather than just be a passive observer.

Music: Owl City, David Crowder Band, Mumford & Sons, The Fray, One Republic, Phil Wickham, Mat Kearney, instrumental music, jazz, whatever movies me

Food: I will eat anything, although I also try to steward my body well, which means I try to eat well. I believe that if you take care of your body, your body will take care of you, so that's what I try to do. I refuse to eat McDonalds (I worked their briefly—I know too much).
Six things I could never do without
My running shoes
My imagination
My mind
My health
My family & friends
My God
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The ways of God
The ways of Man
The end of all things
The ordinariness of life
Why my dear Detroit Lions are perpetually doomed to futility
Where the sidewalk ends
Who is that selfish slob who just threw trash out his window while dirving down the street?
How can I pop his tires so as to edify him?
On a typical Friday night I am
My ideal Friday night would be a night of relaxing and unwinding or otherwise hanging with good friends. Other things that sound like a good idea: dancing, watching a good movie, playing board games, or just whatever.
You should message me if
See above.
The two of us
