When I was 8 I wanted to grow up and be a real life golden buddha statue that could be rented out at $200 an hour for garden parties. Indeed, it was my plan in life to grow many fat rolls, paint myself gold and sit on people's lawns for money. I have since moved on and found other ways to be useful to society.
I am a student of the legal profession who also loves stories, storytelling and storytellers. Interestingly, I find that my two loves - stories and the law come together rather well, as the modern age of global markets and global clients makes having a fascination for different cultural narratives necessary for being an effective advisor and partner. As such, I am a happy member of the legal profession, dreaming of walking with Scheherazade and Herodotus, and occasionally engaged in the making of clay pots.
