Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Currently, I'm an Osteopathic medical student in Missouri, which
essentially consumes my entire existence. "Wait... Missouri? Why
stay listed as Milwaukee?" I know, it's not an ideal thing, but as
a med student, dating is going to be a challenge anyway. I'm in a
small town, more of a pond than a sea when it comes to available
people. But the main reason is, Milwaukee is my home. I hope to be
back there someday and I visit whatever chance I get. Anyway...
When I have time, I try and stay active at the gym, playing
basketball or ultimate frisbee. I also enjoy a good Netflix episode
(watching MASH currently) or grabbing a drink with friends. But
let's be honest, I spend most of my time studying.
I graduated from Marquette University in 2010 with a major in
Clinical Laboratory Science and minor in Spanish for the Medical
Professions. During college, I worked as an RA in a coed freshman
dorm, played ultimate frisbee, and was a proud member of the men's
a capella group. After college, I worked full time in the VA
hospital lab, playing with blood and bacteria mostly.
I love being outside and doing outdoorsy things (I spent 7 years
working at a summer camp). I also enjoy being a shut-in on
occasion, watching something, reading, or playing games (video or
Music is an important focus for me. It filled my basketball void
when I was younger, more on that story if you'd like to ask.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Finishing up my second year of medical school and prepping for my
first round of board exams. I'll be staying on a extra year as
student fellow, so I'll be helping teach and gaining clinical
experience before I move on to my clinical rotation years. Outside
of school, I'm involved in a number of clubs, medical and
non-medical, and I try to stay active, whether at the gym or
playing intramural sports.
I'd love to come back to Milwaukee after school, but where I will
be in the coming years is up in the air right now, that's the
nature of it, unfortunately.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Science and analysis, remembering the mundane and likely useless,
singing, and putting my foot in my mouth.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Typically I get: "You're tall."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Ender's Game, World War Z, Stiff, the Ian Fleming James Bond
series, Game of Thrones series.
Movies: The Matrix, ZombieLand, Bond films, Batman films, Scott
Pilgrim vs. The World
Shows: The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Firefly, Bob's Burgers,
Archer, and Game of Thrones
Music: I listen to a wide variety. I definitely believe in the
power of 80's hair bands, especially for working out or driving.
Most of the time I'll be listening to 88.9, when I can tune in
(really missing that now). Some of my favorite artists are Pink
Floyd, The National, Mumford and Sons, and the Tea Merchants.
Food: I love food, there are very few things I won't eat (just
olives, I think) and nothing I won't try. Things I could eat
everyday: Italian, burgers, Mexican. I'm allergic to peanuts, so I
have never known the apparent joy of a PB&J or a Reese's. But
don't worry, you won't kill me if you have some.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Someone to challenge me, or at least give me crap
A good beer
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Medicine and what I want to be when I grow up
How to balance life
Song lyrics and movie quotes
Circular philosophical arguments
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Depending when I get out of class...
Usually I'll hit the gym, study for a bit (or a lot), then grab a
drink/dinner with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I watched a bunch old Pokemon episodes on Netflix when I needed
quick breaks. Odd mix of nostalgia and "man, this is not as good as
little me thought it was."
