My self-summary
I'm a lawyer and a magician. You know, just like... well... ok I can't think of anyone else right now, but it's fun and it's me. I try to take both seriously, performing magic for corporate and private parties (as well as creating new tricks to sell to other magicians), and working for a great little law firm here in SF.

Really, I'm still a bookish drama kid at heart who just really wants to be on stage and really wants to find the right arguments for the case.

And if it's the kind of thing you're interested in. I'm an ENFJ, though on the border with ENTJ.
What I’m doing with my life
I worked at a big law firm for a year in NYC, hated it, so I came back to a firm I enjoy. We do mostly Intellectual Property law -- copyrights, patents and trademarks.

I pour my creative time in writing new shows and creating new sleight of hand magic tricks. (Really, though, it's ok. You can call them tricks. I don't care what Gob Bluth says).

When I'm not lawyer-ing or magic-ing, you can usually find me watching sketch comedy or stand up, playing board games and card games of a variety of wonderful awesomeness.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My absolute favorite books are:
Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius (I know it's "cool" to hate on Dave Eggers, but hey, I just really liked the book),

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead by Tom Stoppard (yeah... I know this is a play, but it's also a book on my shelf, so I'm gonna go ahead and say it counts),

Catch-22 (I think most people don't read this cause it seems like a stodgy old-timey boring book, but it's actually laugh-out-loud hilarious and really well written)

Also, The Princess Bride, Visit From the Goon Squad, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, The Great Gatsby, and anything by Kurt Vonnegut.

For TV:
I've started to suspect that all good TV is on the BBC:
Sherlock (is fantastic) (can't wait for it to start up again),
Doctor Who (an unabashed fan)
But then there's also Arrested Development, which just has no equal (so US TV makes the list too)
I should also mention West Wing, Firefly, Psych, and Community as honorable mentions

I'm also a big theater fan, and some of my favorite shows are:
The Last Five Years
The Book of Mormon
Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson
Into the Woods
Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog

Aaaaaaaaaaand, let's go with some of my favorite Stand Up Comics:
Eddie Izzard (brilliant)
John Oliver (somehow his standup is way better than what he does for the Daily Show)
Bo Burnham (making clever cool again)
Six things I could never do without
1. A deck of cards
2. Theater
3. Bookstores
4. Books
5. Stand-up Comedy
6. Netflix
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The difference in culture between New York and San Francisco and how I can combine the open-minded-ness that is so freeing in SF with the dedication to being the best in NYC that keeps me on task.
On a typical Friday night I am
At a comedy show or hanging out with a group of friends. Also, I do a weekly magic performance during happy hour on fridays, so there's that too.
You should message me if
You want to go adventuring in SF, or if you want to play some board games, go to trivia night, or a comedy show.

Also, you should be aware that I'm currently in a primary relationship with the awesome and hilarious SeekingSJM, so that's something it's important you can be ok with. Experience with non-monagamy or polyamory appreciated, but not necessary. Compersion and being GGG are important to any relationship, and particularly for people who choose to be some form of non-monogamous. If you're not familiar, Google can be your friend.
The two of us
