Except when dealing with the type of opposing counsel who have watched "A Few Good Men" too many times, I'm generally good-natured, I play well with others, and for some reason, kids and small animals seem to adore me.
I earn shoe money from being a law-talkin-guy when need be, but since this is LA after all, I'm also working on being a novelist. Also, despite (or perhaps because) of my hard-as-nails-strictly-pragmatic profession, the things that I most value in life are (1) pure unadulterated joy; (2) awe; (3) a spiritual and creative kick to the head; (4) a still moment saturated with color and light sustained with a coy glance from across a room.
I tend to find random lists a little more revealing, so without much ado: (1) I'm secure enough in my masculinity to admit that I wish life were like a Bollywood film (spontaneous dancing and singing would certainly make the practice of law more interesting); (2) I can breakdance; (3) I'm scarily good at reading tarot cards despite being a strict rationalist in most aspects of my life; and (4) I try my best to follow two adages - "The more you know who you are, and what you want, the less you let things upset you" (Bill Murray - Lost in Translation); and "Love what YOU love" (Ray Bradbury.)
As for my "Ideal match," someone who makes me feel the same way I feel when listening to "All My Friends" by LCD Soundsystem, "Blown A Wish" by M.B.V. and/or Ellie Gould's cover of "Sweet Disposition" is a tall order, so I guess I'll just say that if you (1) often find yourself singing along to your Ipod without knowing it; or (2) can beat me in a round of "Name That Tune That Is Not Played On The Radio," you're mostly likely going to be OK in my book. Even if you don't fall in those categories, an easiness of laughter, an intellectual curiousity, and/or a generosity with your smiles will probably knock me over like a feather.
P.S. - The little one in the Elmo slippers looking to steal my IPhone is my niece :)
