I am a surgical oncologist who is equally happy swapping my scrubs for a nice tailored suit, swim shorts or ski boots. I have my life together; own a home, made partner at the office, have an Ivy league education and a great dog. I believe in the power of kindness, humor and a brunch with bottomless mimosas (or Bloody Mary's). I'm a big goofball with my patients and my friends; life is too short. I love red wine, bourbon, barbecue, and anything spicy. I love to cook for my friends accompanied by lots of wine. I was raised on theater, music and literature by a mom who trained me to be a gentleman. She and I talk regularly; family is important. Are you're up for a football or Giants game? Perfect, I have season tickets, lets go! Adventure is always a good idea, whether its a day trip to Napa or Colorado for some skiing. I like to have a bag packed at all times, do you?
So who am I looking for? A woman with ambition and a passion for doing good in the world. Someone who’s courageous, sassy and adventurous, but grounded — a combination of Midwestern values and NY style. Someone who is understanding when plans change at the last minute, as they sometimes can with my work. Someone who challenges me with their sarcasm and smarts. A woman who knows that love — for family, friends, humanity — is more important than anything else.
I have a crazy, super charming lab retriever named Marcus, he's a rascal and he'll steal your heart.
Movies: Stranger than Fiction, Godfather (1 & 2 only, 3 was a miss), Power of One, Sci Fi Flicks, Ocean's Eleven, The Hangover, anything Bond, and good action movies in general.
Food: wine is a food group right? Seriously. All things seafood (if you like oysters and lobster rolls you're golden), Mexican, steak and Italian.
Books: My tastes in literature are all over the map. I love the classics (Bronte, Dickens), the scientific (Dune), the economic (anything Gladwell) and just started Salmon Fishing in the Yemen.
Places: Heavenly, Napa/Yountville, Vail, Anywhere with a beach and warm water
