I like to be outdoors to clear my thoughts; sitting on the water puts everything in perspective...
Former soldier turned medical student. It's been an interesting ride to be sure.
I've lived abroad a fair amount of time. Over that time I've learned that I feel most alive when I am out encountering new people, new cultures, new thoughts. I love traveling and seeing what life has to offer.
My work is important to me; I sacrificed a lot to get what I want and to be here. Consequently it means a lot to meet someone who is passionate about their ideas, helping others, or seeking some larger dream they put their effort into. For me, it is wanting to help others through medicine, to be a doctor who actually makes a difference.
When I'm not studying or working, I'm as happy going hiking in the mountains as much as I am having drinks on the beach. A quiet night watching movies or a road trip to go explore...I'm interested in living for the moment when it takes you.
Life is for living, not wondering at what could have happened.
