Or . . . to put it another way, I am a 38 year old attorney who is navigating the waters of starting his own law firm and basking in the fun that is prioritizing family, friends, and all kinds of ill shit over an overbearing professional life.
After years of neglecting what truly matters, I have dove into a whole new way of thinking and conducting my life. It has been an interesting adventure thus far and I am looking forward to what awaits down the road.
Along with opening my own firm, I have also re-dedicated myself to writing professionally and for pleasure. I have a number of projects at various stages of completion and I am looking for the proper outlet for them.
I am very dedicated and driven, but I am not so serious that I can't take or dish out a joke. I have a dry sense of humor that can tend to get a little dark. I also have no problems being sarcastic.
I love good conversation about interesting and inane things. If a lengthy conversation touches upon politics, world events, TV's hottest mom, your favorite cover song, and the Muppets then it is a good one in my opinion.
I think I have said enough for now. I look forward to saying more in the near future.
