My self-summary
So. About me: I'm a lawyer who originally grew up in the Pioneer Valley and eventually found myself back here about a decade ago. In between leaving for college and my return, I've lived in Vermont, Miami, and NYC, with other stints in Virginia and D.C. area. I never made it out "West", despite having a vague sense that I should give it a try.

I tend to find myself pretty busy during the week due to work. In between weekdays, I run to stay fit. No ultramarathons or tough mudders, but more like the 5ks and 10ks that will have some good beers waiting at the end to enjoy with friends. Fortunately, I tend to have weekends to myself. You could find me anywhere from the usual local spots in Northampton or Amherst for brunch or out in Boston supporting any one of the 4 bands my buddy is in (most likely in a joint that has PBR in cans). Whether being active or just hanging out, I like to surround myself with good people (or at least those who I think of as "good").

Our Kentucky Derby parties are legendary. Goofy outfits and mint juleps a must! I also took up golf this summer and to my surprise, and horror, I got somewhat hooked on it. I'm awful but enjoy wearing plaid pants while having some beers on the fairway.

As for the rest, well, I guess we'll just have to meet up and share some stories. I swear, I'm a lot more fun than this profile makes me appear.
What I’m doing with my life
There was lots of schooling involved. I like to think of myself as your everyday Atticus Finch, but after seeing it, "Lincoln Lawyer" Mickey Haller may be more precise.

Figuring it out like everybody else.
The first things people usually notice about me
Recently? Ugly Christmas sweaters.

On an OkC date? I really am the height I claim to be.

Otherwise? That I have a suit and tie job.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: High school classics like The Great Gatsby, The Sun Also Rises, and The Catcher in the Rye. More modern novels from Bret Easton Ellis and World War Z. The Lords of Discipline brings me back to my college days. Just started the Game of Thrones series and trying to get through book 3 before the season ends on HBO

Movies: If I could go to the movies, be the only one in the theater, and not have to get distracted by people texting or talking on their cells, I'd probably see more of them. Some movies I'll stop and watch if I come across them on TV (hopefully unedited): Office Space, Swingers, There Will Be Blood, and Eternal Sunshine. British gangster movies, especially from the 70s and 80s, also up there.

(TV) Shows: Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, Archer, and Family Guy on [adult swim] to drift off to sleep to. Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, or anything with Guy Fieri especially when coupled with the @DadBoner twitter feed.

Music: Most recent iTunes purchases I was pleased with included Father John Misty, Sun Kil Moon, The Jezebels, and Smoke & Jackal. Others include Silversun Pickups, The Gaslight Anthem, and Metric. My recent forray into Spotify is opening up any number of different artists. I'm really liking the new BRMC and look forward to seeing them again when they pass through the area.

One song that reminds me of dating, online or otherwise, is "Pablo Picasso" by the Modern Lovers...

Food: Try to mix it up, but if something looks like the calorie count could kill you in a couple bites I'll probably have to give it a try. Most recent was either the Spicy PBLT at Jakes or the burger special at Local that had candied pecan bacon on top.
Six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What's next?

Can I pull off a beard, in all of its tri-colored glory? (a glorious success)

Or what the six things I could never do without are?
On a typical Friday night I am
These days I find myself relaxing, recharging the batteries, and figuring out what to do on Saturday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a passport I've never used.
You should message me if
You want to. What's the worst that can happen?
The two of us
