I moved to the Bay Area in 2006, after I finished law school on the East Coast. I've had the time of my life being constantly in motion, discovering the richness of the Bay Area, and learning a ton about life. I love driving up a steep SF street and finding a surprise panoramic view at the top ... wandering down a new street to discover an little, unmarked restaurant that serves the best sushi ever ... striking up a conversation with the stranger next to me on MUNI, discovering that we're from the same hometown and beginning a new friendship. From a fast-paced, challenging job to hiking to karaoke parties to youth advocacy to finding an awesome, inclusive synagogue to wine tasting to parades and political rallies (and much more!), I've enjoyed putting down roots here. After two years, the City feels like home.I entertain myself (and pay the bills, student loans, etc.) by practicing law during the day. The payment of the bills is accomplished by IP litigation; the entertainment of self is accomplished by a wide variety of awesome pro bono work - immigration, school discipline, right to counsel, constitutional law, and hopefully more to come.Apart from that, I keep myself busy with more interests than I can reasonably handle - particularly swimming, violin, learning Hebrew (*just* starting this one...), and various forms of volunteer work.A former boss of mine often used to say, "You're not happy unless you're trying to save the world" - and there's some truth to that. My path will probably lead me to public interest law (whether pro bono or on a full time basis) or into government/political work.
