Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I can swim a mile in under 40 minutes and can assemble a tent in
less than five. I listen to NPR. I've been in several a cappella
groups. I believe that reading expands your imaginative capacities

land and at the FDA turned me into a drug god, which explains why
some people now call me "Drod" for short (if by "some people," you
mean no one :) As of three months ago, I am an analyst at a hedge
fund here in NYC. I am the firm's in-house medical\drug\regulatory
expert. I invest in drug stocks and it has been a lot of fun so
