I am a balanced person of many interests. Besides practicing law, politics/community service,and teaching, travel, museums, theatre, art galleries, music of all types (I play percussion and some piano), dancing and sports have all been important to me. When it comes to sports, I am either watching, like as an Orioles season ticket holder, or have participated in triathlons all over the country, while seeing the best of New York, Chicago, Boston and San Francisco. I enjoy attending more formal functions at the Kennedy Center but, also being down to earth and holding hands on the beach or sitting in front of one of my fireplaces. I love to sail, swim in open water, road and moutain bike, run/jog, ride horses and lift weights. Summer concerts at Wolf Trap, Broadway shows, winters in South Beach and good restaurants have all been parts of my life. Some words I would use to describe myself include intelligent, self confident, articulate, perceptive, caring, athletic, romantic, and witty. In my personal relationships, its important to be laughing, affectionate, passionate, flexible, playful, and communicative. These things make it worthwhile, and last. Speaking of which, while my family is important to me, it might be nice to enlarge it.
