You're probably as tired of reading long, excessively detailed
paragraphs about people as I am, so here's a nice bulleted list
- Born in Alaska, moved to Florida in 4th grade, moved to Nashville
the same year.
- Got my BS in molecular biology at UT-Chattanooga
- Got my MD from UT, now working as a resident physician with UT
- Love traveling, and have already marked Canada, Italy, and Russia
off of my list.
- Likes: tennis, Russian language/culture, reading, bad movies,
artsy people, big cities
- Dislikes: football, country music, intensely rural areas, pushy

Healing the sick, saving lives, the usual...(but seriously, mostly
I’m really good at
Sarcasm, knowing useless trivia about random topics, tennis,
playing guitar, pretending I know what I'm doing in the
hospital...oh, and sleeping. I am a champion at sleeping.
The first things people usually notice about me

The six things I could never do without
1. iPhone/iPad (not a Macbook fan, but love these two)
3. Someone to joke around with
5. At least SOME of my books
6. A plan for surviving the zombie apocalypse. I mean, come
on...what are you going to do without one when hell is full and the
dead walk the earth? (Okay, admittedly, I just couldn't come up
with a 6th).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How interesting physics would be if I wasn't so awful at math. Or
how much longer I can procrastinate and still get 4 or 5 hours of
On a typical Friday night I am
Hm, depends on the month. I'm either hanging out with
friends/watching a movie, or waiting for the pager to go off,
