My self-summary
I am extremely confident in my ability to survive - and even thrive - in a post-apocalyptic world. Zombies, nuclear holocaust, virus, sentient computers, you name it - you'll want to be on my team.

You probably need to know more about me, given the low likelihood of an apocalypse. Ok, that's fair. I grew up outside of Pittsburgh (but across the border in Ohio), lived in Columbus, Ohio for many years, then moved to Charlotte in 2005. I love it here, and don't ever want to face another Northern winter.

If you're still reading, then you're probably looking for someone charming, funny, smart, down-to-earth and even-keeled. Me, too.

I'm an attorney, and I work for a big law firm HQed in NYC. Our office here in Charlotte specializes in capital markets and structured finance....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...... As Nate Ruess so aptly puts it, "So this is it? I sold my soul for this? Washed my hands of that for this? I miss my mom and dad for this?" Don't hold it against me, though. I was recently introduced to someone who said, "You don't look like a lawyer." I wasn't sure if I should be flattered or insulted. I think I was just confused. What is a lawyer supposed to look like?

I appreciate a person who knows the difference between "your" and "you're", even if they don't always take the time to get it right in a text message.

I am crazy about animals, and a sucker for a stray. I'm starting to log countries as a result of my recent commitment to world travel - so far I can check off Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, the Bahamas, New Zealand, Australia, Italy and France. Where are we headed next?

Please have a passport and be prepared to use it!
What I’m doing with my life
Is that you, Mom?
I’m really good at
making people laugh, telling stories, following detailed instructions, trouble-shooting electronics, installing ceiling fans, over-thinking things, word-smithing and being skeptical. Also, using sugar packets to shim restaurant tables so that they don't wobble while we eat.
The first things people usually notice about me
is that I look much younger than I am and, apparently, that I don't look like a lawyer. See "My self-summary", paragraph 4, above.

The best compliment I've received was from my best friend's wife, who said to him, "He's a charming motherf*cker, isn't he?"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a lot, mostly fiction. I enjoy going to see almost any movie. If you think the TV show Rick and Morty is hilarious, we'll get along just fine. My iPod contains mostly current alternative, classic alternative, and classic rock. Recently I've gotten interested in electro swing (although I realize I'm late to the game on that one). I like all types of ethnic foods, especially Middle Eastern, Asian and Mexican.
The six things I could never do without
My iPhone, my Kindle, my DVR, warm weather (for extended periods), fresh fruit, and a hot shower.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
winning Powerball. Or MegaMillions. Either one would be fine. I like to daydream about the two charitable foundations I would create.
On a typical Friday night I am
trying desperately to finish work. And already dreading Monday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that I think Neil Diamond rocks and I love candy corn. And I read the answers to your "About sex" questions first.
You should message me if
you're interested in meeting a thoughtful, charming, Ivy League-educated (without the elitism) guy who can make you laugh.

You should probably not message me if you reference God or Jesus in your profile. Having faith in and of itself isn't a problem for me - I do believe in a force out there that is greater than us - it surrounds us and penetrates us... it binds the galaxy together (bonus points for you, if you can identify that quote), but if your religious faith is a very important part of your life and/or you attend church regularly and would expect me to, we're probably not going to be a good fit.
