My self-summary
I grew up in northern Illinois, about an hour and a half outside of Chicago. I'm into film and television, and I keep up to speed on politics.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a recent graduate of Georgetown Law and am now a lawyer at a small human rights non-profit that does Alien Torts Statute litigation. This sounds better than it is.

I like international law, esp. human rights law, international humanitarian law and international criminal law. So I hope to be able to keep doing things related to that career-wise.
I’m really good at
Shuffleboard. Tweeting. Sporcle.
The first things people usually notice about me
I dunno, personality-wise, I'm pretty relaxed and generally try to put people at ease.
