Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up an expat in 5 different countries. Most of my family
lives abroad, and I have no idea where "home" is. I'm in medical
school at UF and played five years of college rugby.
I'm energetic, determined, and inquisitive. I'm a firm believer in
"work hard, play hard". Having said that, here are a few other
things you might want to know about me.
I love to eat, so I learned to cook, and got decent at it. I also
enjoy exploring the many local restaurants in town.
I value experiences over material goods, so I spend my free time
and money traveling but drive an 11 year old car with one working
speaker, and I'm totally fine with that. I've been to over 20
countries, and am always looking forward to the next adventure
(currently planning to hike to Machu Pichu this summer).
Staying active is very important to me. Playing sports, hiking,
rock climbing, working out, whatever. It's all good, as long you're
not a couch potato. I recently got my scuba license, so I plan on
exploring the local springs/caves.
Movie nights or board games are great for a quiet evening, but most
weekends I would rather go out and be social.
I like to salsa. If we go dancing I will ask you to join me. It
doesn't matter if you don't know how (but if you do, even
I read a lot, and not just books, so I'm full of random and often
useless facts. This makes for good conversations with any one that
appreciates knowledge for its own sake, while some find it
annoying. If so, keep looking, as we probably won't get
Anyways, say hello =P
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Medical school, so I'm usually in the hospital or clinics around
Gainesville or in Jacksonville for a few weeks at a time.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Science (duh), languages, making friends with strangers in hostels,
rugby, and setting and reaching goals.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm very easy to talk to and open minded. I also usually get asked
why I don't look Hispanic/ have a strong accent with a name like

I am an avid reader, but picking a favorite book is very difficult.
My IB English class taught me to enjoy classical literature, but I
also like reading series such as Game of Thrones, The Wheel of
Time, and of course, Harry Potter. I recently finished reading the
Foundation Series by Isaac Asimov as part of an online literature
course I'm (very) slowly taking for fun.
I'm not very big on TV but I enjoy watching House, The Walking
Dead, How I Met Your Mother, and Game of Thrones when they're on
I love Mexican and Thai food, and even took a Thai cooking course
while I was visiting. Like any self respecting man, I cannot turn
down a good steak, but I'm making an effort to make vegetables a
bigger part of my diet.
My music taste varies, but mostly I just like listening to new
things. I cannot stand the radio in Gainesville, as they play the
same 15 songs over and over. I can and do enjoy anything from
electronic to salsa to classical music, and a handful of country
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My laptop, sports, my passport, my family, delicious food, and red
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think a lot about where my next adventure is going to take me,
how to maximize happiness in life, space exploration, and why
people are so afraid to accept that evolution and climate change
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm usually either trying out a new recipe, at a bar with friends,
or occasionally, as much as it sucks, staying in to study.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've never lived more than 4 years in a row in the same country, so
even when I'm "home", I'm somewhat of a foreigner.
Edit: Just completed 5 years in Gainesville!
