Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
When I was very young, I read a children's picture book about how
people got energy from food. It very scientifically depicted little
factory people in hard hats stirring up food in a vat ("stomach")
to break it down, followed by an assembly line in your small
intestine where other little guys picked up widgets ("nutrients").
While I don't remember who drew the short straw to work in the
large intestine, I do know that the book helped spark an interest
in biology/science, and about learning about how stuff works that
still drives me today.
My curiosity about science eventually led me to pharmacy school,
and I feel blessed to be able to put the knowledge learned to use
working in drug development. I get a lot of joy out of researching
scientific articles learning about the boundaries of known
knowledge on various topics and being able to apply it to my work
As far as hobbies go, I like biking around to explore the bay area
and eating at places suggested by friends and/or strangers on yelp.
Some of my favorite places to visit on two wheels include the
Presidio, Ferry Building, Dolores Park, Twin Peaks, and of course,
GG bridge. If you have any other great biking/hiking destinations,
definitely let me know as much as I like my job, sitting at a desk
for 40+ hours a week is probably not mankind's natural state of
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Exploring the bay area is a big interest for me since there is
still so much to see. Weeknights are low key (e.g. netflix, evening
walks), weekends are for eating my way through Yelp and hitting up
said good eats by bike.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I swiped $7.99 on a United flight to watch it again and was very
satisfied watching big robots fight 30,000+ft in the air.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Smart phone
2. GPS on smart phone
3. Yelp on smart phone

6. You get the idea..it still blows my mind that 10+ years ago I
used to memorize people's phone numbers and use a land line shared
with 56k internet modem (*bssshKAWELFHSALDFBbeepbooopbeepboop*)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Travelling. Most recent trips were to Paris and Amsterdam,
considering SE Asia for next adventure.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Relaxing at home with good wine/dinner, or hanging out with friends
at the local watering hole.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
