I am a fun-loving but nonetheless serious professional- I like people, have a good sense of humor, and am very compassionate as well. I enjoy good conversation and appreciate both country and classical music. I enjoy my work, find it challenging, although I am not a workaholic. I am always reading for pleasure, usually about history and economics. I constantly travel internationally, especially to Israel. I enjoy being adventuresome, and have been to such diverse places as Ethiopia, Bulgaria, Uzbekistan, Russia, China, Turkey, Nepal, Dubai, Bahrain, India, Egypt, Jordan, South Africa, Myanmar, and Cuba. I especially enjoy doing pro bono legal work for causes about which I feel strongly.
