First the superficial: I LOVE skiing. As in, if I had no other care in the world, I just might ski every day of my life. I also really like whitewater kayaking-windsurfing is similarly awesome. Unfortunately, growing up in Arizona where both snow and water aren't particularly abundant, it was hard to pursue these passions. Now the substantial: my commitment to and love of Jesus Christ informs pretty much everything I'm passionate about. I have this suspicion that Christ doesn't care how often I ski for skiing's sake, so I try to suit my passions to a purpose: Christ. This means I don't ski as often as I might like, but I'm fulfilled anyways.
I'm looking for an equal partner in the business of life. Someone to share in the joys as well as the sorrows, the work as well as the play. Someone to counsel with in all
our affairs, to raise children with in wisdom. Someone who I can impact the community for good with, stand up for truth with, and serve those around me with. Ultimately, someone who I can worship the Lord with, as all these other things I see as stemming from this one desire. I guess really all I'm saying is I'm looking for a righteous woman while trying to be a righteous man and Priesthood holder in return.
I attend the University of Chicago Law School and live near Obama's house. I volunteer teach at a middle school, arrange for law school faculty to debate visiting speakers, serve at two different levels in the LDS law society, and, when I can find time, help a LDS scholar prepare manuscripts for publication. I love pursuing adventure. Sometimes that's traveling to far off countries, other times that's braving Lake Michigan in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. Whatever the pursuit, it's always worthwhile
and makes for great stories later on.
