Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a native of Washington DC, went to school at the University of
A first year physician working on my intern year in Philadelphia.
Besides medicine, I am passionate about several things in life. I
love to cook!... I used to work as a cook before medical school and
now it is a hobby of mine. I also love to dance, recently (within
the last 2 years) I have found the joys of Zumba and Hip Hop. To
keep in shape, I find that dancing is much more fun that running
any day. However, I am currently training for a marathon.
I am an optimist and generally a positive person. After getting to
know someone, I prefer hugs over handshakes. I love to laugh and
make others laugh as well, a day without some sort of comical
diversion is a day wasted. I'm generally an extravert while being
content alone for short periods of time.
I believe that happiness lies in helping others, thus the decision
to practice medicine. I'm big into volunteerism and saving the
planet, politically liberal on social issues.
Where do I see myself in the future?... besides practicing
Medicine, I want to see the world. Specifically I want to do what
Anthony Bourdain does and travel the world, eating and writing. So
far I have back packed through Europe and have visited Ecuador and
Southeast Asia. The lack of time and money has limited any recent
travels, I hope to do a lot more traveling once I settle into my
My relationship with family and friends are very important to me
and I am looking for a person with whom I can also build a special
relationship with as well.
I am also a writer, I have kept a running blog of my life since
medical school started, an endeavor that I am very proud of, it
allows me to be creative, since much of medicine is not very
creative. I'll let you read the blog after we've met.
Since so many people ask... I am interested in critical care

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Medicine (obvious I know, but this is what I do day in and day out)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If I weren't working, I would try out a new recipe, relax, watch a
basketball game on tv, or put on a movie.
I like going out as well, trying new restaurants and (x) activity
I don't drink, cause I can't digest alcohol, specifically I can't
enzymatically break down aldehyde, thus frequenting bars is not for
me. Unless, its an oyster bar or a tapas bar, sushi bar... possibly
a coffee bar?.... All great choices.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can't digest alcohol, sad I know.
Some movies that I enjoy that most guys are not willing to admit to
liking... Pride and Prejudice, Love Actually
I swear... I am all that is man otherwise....
