Height:  5'8 Weight:  210 lbs. Alumni Status:  Class of '05
Location:  Austin (Houston temporarily) Favorite Baseball Team:  Cincinnati Reds
Natural Enemies:  Incompetence, inefficiency, authority figures

Athletic Ability: Solidly above average (Solid 6?). I played club hockey while in law school, still play in a competitive men's league. Can compete without embarrassing myself in almost any sport, though I don't really excel in anything.

Sartorial Style: Plaid shorts are my standby, though these days I'm more in the pinstripe suits. I dig old school, and fedoras are never out of style. Traditional over new-age: solid base color shirts.

Favorite Beverage and Consumption Freq: Jameson is my standby whiskey. For beers I'm typically drinking local craft, like Liveoak Hefe or Karbach Saison.

Political Philosophy: Prose before hos.

I tend toward libertarian ideas, though I can't quite go as far as the Libertarian party platform. The broader the jurisdiction a government has, the more limited its powers should be. So, I want tiny government on a large level, but I'm fully OK with massive government on a local level, because it allows people to easily vote with their feet.

I suppose more than anything, I'm a process nut, in two ways: 1) I think that whatever processes we establish, they should be followed consistently without a view to their ends, and 2) If those processes aren't working out how we'd like, we should work within the processes established to modify the processes. I think far too many changes to our societal structure have been made without necessarily amending the constitution to achieve that change. A low level example of the type of thing that really pisses me off -- I'm not sure I disagree with the result of a drinking age of 21, but the way that has been achieved (Federal withholding of state highway funds if the states don't enact the drinking age) is complete bullshit.

Religious Philosophy: Cultural Catholic, but from a religious standpoint, unattached to any particular organization or belief structure. My sympathies lie with the Church, but I can't honestly profess to believe things that are demonstrably false according to every piece of information we have (transubstantiation).

Musical Favorites: The Black Keys, Muse, The XX, Black Angels, Black Crowes, Rihanna, The Killers, Temple of the Dog, Brandi Carlisle, The 7th Floor Crew

Favorite Quote from an ND Coach:

Miscellaneous Data: Porky ribs are delicious. I would like to coach football someday.
