Many people tell me they can't believe that they have joined JDate. I can understand this view. However, when I relocated to Connecticut in December 2009 I decided JDate could be a great opportunity to meet someone Jewish since I will finally be in a geographic location that will allow for it. Originally from Portland, Maine, I became licensed to practice law in Connecticut due to the belief that there are more opportunities both professionally and socially. This new adventure is long overdue and I am learning everyday. I enjoy the beach in the summer (particularly Old Orchard Beach, Maine) and hanging out with friends and family. I am a New England Patriots and Boston Celtics fan. I listen to 80's music (rock and pop), jam bands (Phish), and reggae (Steel Pulse).
