My self-summary
I'm a freshly minted doctor and I just started my residency. I moved here from New York by way of St. Louis and Baltimore (yes, Serial is awesome). I played hockey in college and I still try to run or work out every day (work permitting). Things that I value include a good sense of humor, self-awareness and common courtesy. I'll have plenty of time to be a grouch when I'm old but for now I'm pretty happy-go-lucky.

Also, I know the difference between "there," "they're" and "their" as well as "your," "you're" and "yore" (apparently this is a big deal?).
What I’m doing with my life
When I was little I wanted to be a dalmatian when I grew up. Unfortunately, reality hit in college when I learned about biology so I decided to become a doctor instead.
I’m really good at
I'm pretty good at tying a necktie, reading the news every day and staying in contact with my family no matter how busy my schedule. Basically, I'm the Jewish James Bond (James Bondawitz, if you will).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like books, movies, shows, music and food! Fascinating right? Well, here are a few fun facts about me in no particular order:

- I played hockey growing up and through college. Though I had to hang up the pads, I'm always up for a game of shinny (if you know this term I can almost guarantee that I'll respond, haha!).

- I have a sister who is an engineer. She lived in India for 2 years and is much more interesting than me (she now lives in Cambodia). That said, I did get to travel around Southeast Asia with her.

- I'm a certified scuba diver and I've been diving in the South Pacific and Southeast Asia. It's really not so scary unless you start to run out of air (which is why I dive with my sister...she has small lungs so I can "borrow" some of hers when I inevitably run out!)

- I had an apple tree growing in my apartment for 4 years old that I grew from an apple seed in college (Honeycrisp, of course). Unfortunately, I asked someone (cough*my parents*cough) to look after it for a few weeks and now it's in critical condition.

- Breakfast is the best meal of the day, hands down. I love just about all breakfast foods (sans bacon) and it's really the main reason I learned how to cook (this is a loose interpretation of the word "cook").

- I usually preface my questions with "I have a question..." I have been doing it since I was a little boy and I can't stop myself.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If I could potentially fall asleep right now (be it standing, sitting or in mid-conversation) without anyone noticing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't like canoes. Yes, I realize this is strange for someone who scuba dives.
