Mostly, I like to write about ideas and events and how they enchanted, effected or inspired the lives of everyday people both today and in the past. I've published on everything from the tragic fall of Guatemala's government sixty years ago to the ideas that shaped American society in the 1950s. Lately, when not in hot pursuit of my law license, I've been writing on projects about psychology, corporate crime and even a couple of adventure stories. One of these days, I should probably get around to writing a romance novel...
I finished law school and moved back the city after a long time away. See the world is also a passion of mine. I've traveled far and wide for work and for school. My favorite places so far have been Munich and Strasbourg, both for their sense of warmth and atmosphere. I'm also fond of London for both its sweeping scale and its culture.
Among my pet peeves are superficiality, late trains, bar exams and people with inflated egos. I’m working downtown at the moment and I think am finally getting used to the long early morning commutes.
Movies: Blade Runner for its sense of atmosphere
Citizen Kane for being so far ahead of its time
The Wizard of Oz for its heart
The Third Man for its sense of mystery
The Lives of Others for its emotion
Black Rain for its story
Dark City for its ending
TV: News junkie! Though I also enjoy the First 48, The Daily Show and the occasional baseball game
