My self-summary
I run, both road races and on unpaved trails. I love almost all music, and occasionally play the cello. I am an orthopedic nurse at a world-class academic medical center. I explore the world around me through always trying new tastes, sights, smells.

I enjoy experiencing different cultures through cuisine. I'll try just about any ethnic food at least once, and any time I travel somewhere new, foods and the arts are my way of exploring. I feel equally at home in a cocktail bar like manifesto and at a divey bar like the Peanut.

I enjoy the occasional video game, and watching movies with my friends.

INFJ, if that matters to you.
What I’m doing with my life
At work, I am developing my own nursing practice, learning every day, and also teaching a pre-operative total joint class for my patients. In my spare time, I run - mostly unpaved trails, rock climb, listen to and play music, cook, and enjoy spending time with my friends and family. This fall, I will begin work on a DNP for adult nurse practitioner.
I’m really good at
Helping people - from my loved ones, to my patients at work. Cooking. Knowing and retaining random facts.
The first things people usually notice about me
Willingness to help
Something about long eyelashes

The six things I could never do without

2. A place to run - new ground under my feet
3. New foods
4. People to experience the above with
5. Intellectual challenge
6. A good single malt scotch
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the amazing world around me. How I can continue to improve as a nurse. What I can do to make others' lives easier. What to cook.
On a typical Friday night I am
Getting off work, at a bar with my friends, or at home cooking and watching a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I regret putting away my chance to pursue the cello as a legitimate career nearly as much as I love the nursing work I do.
You should message me if
you'd like to talk to me, and think we have something in common.
