I'm a young attorney who moved to Allentown in 2010 for a new job after a two-year sting in Stroudsburg. It's a nice place to live, but it's kind of hard to meet people. Hence, the JDate profile. I work for a small, four-attorney firm, mainly doing litigation within the field of municipal law, and unlike a lot of young lawyers out there, most of the time, I like my job a lot.
I am a giant nerd and like to consider myself reasonably well-read and well-informed, but I also have a boundless capacity for useless trivia, which I put to good use when my friends and I attend a weekly trivia night at a restaurant in the Lehigh Valley. I have low-grade obsessions with Grey's Anatomy, Castle, mystery novels, and the movie "Pitch Perfect". I recently decided to start training for sprint distance triathlons. I was a field sport athlete all throughout school, so I never ran as a sport (simply to train for a sport), so this was the craziest and most ridiculous thing I could think of to do that wouldn't risk actual life and limb. Plus, according to my personal trainer, I have ridiculously strong legs and apparently, this makes me well suited for cycling. This might get interesting.
I just got back from my fourth trip to New Orleans in nine years, and I will be going back again next year, actually to compete in the Crawfish Man triathlon. It's my favorite American city other than my own hometown, and I will look for any excuse to go, particularly since one of my closest friends from high school is from there and still lives there. I've done a little bit of travelling (not enough), and on the international front, to Italy, Israel, Paris, and St. Maarten. Next on my bucket list are Prince Edward Island (Canada) and Ireland. Any suggestions on where to go? If it's a good one, I might let you tag along.
Hmm, what other random tidbits can I give you? I've got a crazy eclectic taste in music, everything from "Bach to Britney". I LOVE the Orioles and the Ravens (I've never been to a Ravens game. Who wants to take me!). I love going out to restaurants and/or trying new food. I threw a mean Hanukkah party this past winter, and I invented a Hanukkah gelt shot that was a big hit. If you're nice, I might give you the recipe. Even though I'm not a big drinker, particularly not beer, I'm weirdly good at "Flip-Cup". My family has two great dogs, Tyler and Brucie, that I am CRAZY about!
If any of this sounds at all intriguing, drop me a line!
