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, so "home" is a complicated concept for me. 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".
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've been to over 25 countries, and am always looking forward to
the next adventure (currently planning to hike to Machu Pichu this
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.
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 along.
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.

I'm very easy to talk to and open minded. I also usually get asked

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, camaraderie, delicious food, and
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 should be, space
exploration, and why people are so afraid to accept that evolution
and climate change are facts.
