First the superficial:
I like running. And pizza. But not consecutively.
I am also a semi-casual-vegetarian (a move inspired by a dream and the word of wisdom - no joke). However, I make exceptions for that crazy bacon-bacon-bacon pizza at Little Caesars.
Graduate and full-ride recipient from the University of Chicago Law School. Now an attorney.
I once hiked across a continent. And crossed six rivers in flip flops.... I strongly advise you *not* do this. Unless of course there is a bacon-bacon-bacon pizza at the end of the journey.
I do natural resource law representing little guys against big corporations. I also represent a massive bank against multi-millionaire debtors. Finally, I once represented the state of Texas against convicts on death row.
So wind-mills, millionaires, and death. Yeah...
One interesting thing about my job is that I can work remotely pretty much whenever I want. I've traveled to London and Paris while on the job and have lived in Morocco for a few weeks, just visiting a friend in Rabat. I'm contemplating a few weeks in Hong Kong as well. This is a major bonus to my job!
The downside? I would like to be throwing down roots somewhere - but... for now, I thought it best to take advantage of the work possibilities, which probably won't last much beyond a year or so.
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 much care how many scumbag millionaires I clobber, so I try to suit my passions to a purpose: Christ. This means there are a few more robber barons running around, but in return, I get an added portion of the Spirit as I try to limit my time at work and pursue those things Christ would have me pursue.
If that wasn't deep enough for you, let's talk about relationships:
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.
Now some lighter stuff:
If you are in town, let's go dancing. Serious. I'm no good at swing, but I really enjoy contra dancing.
I also enjoy doing pretty random and spontaneous stuff. Last winter I skied down a cliff (well, maybe more like fell down a cliff), while earlier this year, I went to a guided Buddhist meditation in a shady part of Boston. I've been in the middle of multiple riots in Chicago, I've sailed across the gulf stream, and I've once attempted to swim a raft full of people across an alpine lake in Montana.
Really, I just like good stories. So let's trade them sometime. Or drop me a line and let's discuss how bad flip flops are at forging rivers (honestly, that's the one thing the Oregon Trail didn't teach me).
