Hi! I am Blake Saffels, and I am currently a 2L. I grew up in Overland Park, went to KU for undergrad, then lived and worked in Kansas City, Missouri for five years before returning to law school. My wife and I currently live in Lenexa with our one-year old son, Emerson, and our two dogs, Dude and Walter. If you picked up on the dog names and love the greatest movie ever made as much as I do, you are awesome. If you don’t get the reference, I highly recommend taking a few hours away from studying to watch The Big Lebowski. While I am giving out recommendations –if you are not from KC – you should go to Joe’s KC Bar-B-Que for a Z-Man and fries as soon as possible. Between the movie and the BBQ, you may just have the best Saturday of your life. In my free time away from law school, I like to cook, hike, fish, play embarrassingly horrible rounds of golf, read and watch all KC/KU sports. I look forward to getting to know all of you, and I hope you enjoy your 1L year as much as I did!
