I am sarcastic and fun-loving. I thrive on being around other people. I think my friends would describe me as honest, loyal, dependable, confident and open-minded. I’m an attorney by profession (to pay the mortgage), but I often daydream about a side career as a professional make-up artist. I am a huge Maryland basketball fan, but appreciate all sports. I volunteer my extra time to pro-bono work and charities, and am a strong believer that we are obliged to use our skills to give back to our community. I like exotic restaurants with exciting food and good wine; shopping and shoes; laughing – even if it’s just at myself; and can always be talked into late-night karaoke after a few cocktails. I appreciate people who can expose me to a new perspective or teach me something new. I am looking for a guy who’s smart, but not a know-it-all. Someone who can keep me laughing, who finds humor in everyday life and isn’t afraid to laugh at himself. He looks for the good in people and gives them the benefit of the doubt. He loves to talk and debate, is never afraid to speak up and disagree with me, but he's also a great listener and is willing to consider another perspective. He has a strong sense of himself, and is career and family oriented.
