I'm energetic, and tend to pack a lot into my life: friends, work and study. I'm considerate, thoughtful and caring and place a really high value on honesty and commitment. I live by my values, and think deeply about the way I live my life.
I was raised in an observant Jewish family. Although I now practise very little, my Jewish identity is important to me and I hope this will remain part of my life.
Over the last couple of years I've taken time out of clinical practice to work in public health and policy on a national and international level. I'm also studying for a masters degree in public health.
I sing in the London Gay Men's Chorus, enjoy reading (but do less of it than I'd like to) and dash around seeing friends. Love having friends over to dinner.
Favourite films: Japanese Story, Dangerous Liaisons (Glen Close version), The Hours
Favourite books: Anna Karenina, A Suitable Boy, A Fine Balance
Favourite food: Indian (the veggie sort), anything with cheese in (seriously, anything), fried breakfast (hold the bacon/sausage)
2. Radio 4
3. Newspapers (or online equivalent)
4. Quiet space for myself
5. Coffee (have tried)
6. My glasses (though bizarrely I did once actually lose them)
And I enjoy talking about ideas, feelings, thoughts with my friends and colleagues.
I wonder about the world we live in, and what makes it tick. Politics, economics, people.
Very rare for me to be doing any sort of bar-propping on a Friday night...
