Your most embarrassing date moment?
I met up with a first date at this great sushi place in the suburbs, because she lived out there. It happened to be one of my favorite restaurants - I eat there almost every time I visit my mother. Well, oddly enough, my mother happened to be there this particular night, with a bunch of her girlfriends. Naturally, we were seated right next to them. They recognized me immediately, and the questions started right away. "Why didn't you tell me you had a date tonight?!" "How did you two meet?" "Is this your first date?" Fortunately, the girl was a champ about it and we actually had a few more dates after that.
What career accomplishment are you most proud of?
I would probably say just being gainfully employed at a great firm doing really interesting work. I graduated from law school at a particularly bad time to be looking for work as a young attorney. When the economy took a turn for the worse back around 2007, there was an uptick in the amount of applications to law schools, as well as other graduate programs. Law schools ultimately admitted more students as a result, so when I graduated in 2011 there was an unprecedented number of freshly-minted lawyers competing for entry-level legal positions. The industry had not rebounded to its pre-2007 form, so that obviously created a supply/demand issue, and positions like the one I'm in now were few and far between.
