I like to get after things and people, whether pursuing my career, social life, or any number of adventures. In a nutshell, I'm a laid back but driven guy who grew up in Kansas (Dorothy is my homegirl), taught high school English for a bit, and now work as a lawyer full-time and facilitate poetry workshops in a South Bronx juvenile detention facility on the side.
I like to maintain balance in my life whether I'm reading/writing for fun, working out, singing karaoke, or Thoreau-ing it up in the outdoors. I'm equally happy hanging out with my hippy teacher friends or Wallstreet/lawyer dudes and am likewise interested in dating people with different interests/careers.
I'm looking for someone who is passionate about something in life--professionally, creatively, or idealistically (I have a weakness for all three...). I moved back to the city in the fall and would like to find someone to re-explore the city with and to share laughs, good books and conversation, cups of coffee, glasses of wine, and maybe a lil romance.
Ultimately, I want to find The One (cue favorite Meg Ryan rom com!), but I don't need it to happen overnight or with the next person I date.
