Oh man. No pressure, right?
I'm a southern transplant who came to LA for school and never left. Did the deal - college, law school, big firm, and got to where I realized being a machine wasn't for me. Took a sabbatical, went and got my teaching credentials for yoga, and settled back into a job that lets me practice law from home, spend a lot of time with my friends and do things I love. Living the dream is pretty much my life right now.
Soooo... what you can tell about me I suppose is I'm a giant nerd, I take my work seriously but don't take myself seriously, I'm funny (at least I'd like to think so - unless my friends have all been lying to me...), and I have a pretty happy life. I make up for the nerdiness by being a huge sports fan - I was born in Kentucky and went to UCLA for college... basketball is in my blood. I believe March Madness should be a national holiday. All sports are fair game though. In a past life I think I was a Southern frat boy named Bubba - I love all things fried, I could watch sports all day, and I may or may not still have traces of the southern twang.... I do, however, still have the ability to do some serious damage in the kitchen - it's a life skill in the South. Thankfully, I compensate for it by working out enough that my hidden competitive eating abilities don't show on the outside!
My friends would tell you I'm loyal to a fault, I'm funny, I'm driven, I'm incredibly considerate and compassionate, and I'm a lot of fun to be around - probably that I try to sucker them into hiking or yoga classes on a regular basis, too. (If you meet any of them and they don't say that, please let me know...it means I need to pay them more!). I love my family, but they're all scattered around the country - and I wouldn't have it any other way. I still enjoy my family and my amazing godson (17 months old) whenever I can.
Ok - fun facts of the day. I suppose this is the part of the program where I disclose embarassing things about myself. Fact 1. Despite all the cool things I can do in yoga and the solid coordination skills I have when I'm focused, I'm actually incredibly clumsy in real life. INCREDIBLY. CLUMSY. Banged up elbow? Me. Bruises that appear out of nowhere (even when I'm completely sober)? Mhmm. I still can't decide if I don't know the dimensions of my own body or I'm subconsciously trying to self-select out of the gene pool. I'll report back to camp if I figure it out. Fact 2. More people than I can count have told me I have the cutest sneeze known to mankind. Whatever that means. Apparently it's not a sneeze - more of a squeak. Can't confirm or deny, but if it's true that's pretty embarassing.
So what I'm looking for? Hmmm... somebody I can have fun with and who seems to enjoy life as much as I do. Active? Necessary. Funny? Yes. Driven and ambitious? Indeedy. Sports lover? That would help. Guy Ritchie fan? A plus. Dog lover? Good stuff. Hopeless romantic? Icing on the cake (and your secret is safe with me). I guess at the end of the day I'd like to meet somebody who's as committed to living a full life as I am and is looking for a partner in crime. I love to travel, get into conversations that are so great you can lose hours without knowing it, hike a new trail, try the hot new restaurant in town, stay in with good company a good moviegood food, hit concerts, go check out the new photography exhibits opening.. I'm up for anything. Hopefully you are too.
PS - Please be as tall as you say you are. Please have pictures that actually look like you. Please don't secretly be an axe murderer :)
