I’m Anthony. I’m an attorney. Don’t stop reading, there’s more. I’m also a father, fledgling writer, washed-up athlete, fitness buff, conversationalist, admirer of beautiful photography, and contrarian. I’m a native of New York City. I like the Yankees a bit. I spent my twenties earning graduate degrees instead of being productive to society. I’m no longer in my twenties. I’m fascinated by fitness and health, not so much by the science behind it (though I am), but by the results one can achieve. I exercise because I sit….alot, and aspire to perform handstand push ups. Why? Because its a real feat of strength, that’s why. And recently, I’ve become fascinated by social media and its grip on culture. I am also intrigued by its ability to breakdown barriers, particularly with regard to business, while simultaneously raising new barriers to genuine human interaction.
I read a lot about the higher education bubble, simply, because (1) I’ve experienced it in some measure and (2) I have children. I wish American education focused more on creativity and the strengths of individual students…not mere memorization. A goal is to develop an entrepreneurial mindset in my children so as not to fall prey to the idea that intellect is determined by degrees and the “prestige” of the institution from which said degrees came. I’d love to see dilapidated communities rejuvenated by economic and artistic development, or some combination of the two. And as may be obvious but probably isn’t, I am interested in most things legal, specifically legal ethics, the development of the profession and its future. I’ll write about these matters and others because of my strong belief in the interconnectedness of ideas which play out in the real world, not because I lack focus.
I use the word “I” often because this is a page about me.
If you’ve read this far, kudos to you.
