I'm a geek, figure I should let that cat out of the bag as well. I like sci/fi, fantasy, gaming (including board and card games) and all that, but I keep myself balanced with cooking (I make a mean cheesecake and recently made a Daube du Boeuf), friends, etc. I've wanted to write and go to culinary school at different points of my life, but those never worked out. I'm can probably be too quiet at times, but c'est la vie.t.
I work as a Bankruptcy attorney at a firm based in Knoxville. I work a lot in our Clinton office, so Anderson county is often on my radar.
I'm more of a good pub person than into a club scene. I've recently discovered a love of bourbon, so I tend to try new libations of that type when I can. If there's a festival (and let's face it, there's a ton it seems here in Knoxville), I'm usually going to be interested in going. Rossini festival, a good beer/wine festival, Highland Games festivals, etc. Also, a good music festival is nice as well.
I want to travel to as many places as possible. So far, i've only made it out to Ireland, though. One day!
Sportswise, I enjoy watching football; both the American and European varietals. Tennessee Vols and Arizona Cardinals are my go to teams. Alabama will always be the bigger rival than Florida to me...but that's just how I grew up. I enjoy the opera, jazz ensembles, musicals, and the theater. I want to go to more museums and enjoy what they have to offer. I support same sex marriage; everyone should have the same equality am I right?
