My self-summary
An explorer and adventurer at heart coupled with an unquenchable curiosity for the world. I love traveling extensively around the globe. This passion led me to all 7 continents and over 60 countries a few years back. The Earth is a beautiful place, seeing and experiencing it is my life's work.

Grew up and schooled in SoCal (Fight On!!), did some clinical training up in Seattle for a bit, spent a summer volunteering aboard the USNS Mercy Hospital Ship for a US Navy humanitarian mission around South East Asia, and now a Bay Area transplant...and loving it!

I'm passionate about many things: travel, road trips, CrossFit/fitness, hiking, cooking, photography, healthcare, the outdoors, and most of all, being a kid at heart. Being active plays a huge role in my life. Besides CrossFit, I've enjoyed running a few half-marathons and just completed my first triathlon. I hope you like the outdoors because it's highly probable I'll ask you to go for a run or hike the first or second time we meet up.

From a career perspective, I strive to make major efforts to positively impact and change the way healthcare is delivered. My "office" is the Emergency Department and Trauma Bay- a front row seat to the circus of life, complete with all its beauty and horror. I absolutely LOVE what I do! If anything, instead of making me cynical, what I experience each shift makes me more excited about the gift of life. One caveat though, I don't completely define myself through my career choice, rather, it's only one layer to my layer-cake life.

I grew up reading Nat Geo, watching Discovery Channel, and as a kid I would sit on my bed and stare at a ginormous 6'x'4' Nat Geo world map above in order to memorize as many countries, islands, rivers, and lakes as possible. A few years back I had the gumption to quit my job and go experience these places that captured my imagination all across the globe. I spent an incredible 1.5 years playing global hopscotch meeting incredible people, gazing upon vistas that are absolutely sublime, all while experiencing some hair-raising adventures via car, train, plane, boat/ship, parachute, scuba tank, kayak, zip line, bicycle, motorcycle, scooter, horse, donkey, elephant to traverse oceans, lakes, rivers, mountains, valleys, concrete jungles, forests, plains, and deserts. Other times required I run, jump, swim, squat, duck, crawl, throw, abseil, stand, or just sit back and relax. Plenty of stories and lessons there. Once a traveler, always a traveler. Will continue to visit new places and revisit old ones with new insight/perspective. The way I see it, the more I experience now, the more I have to share later.

While crazy adventures create memories that last a lifetime, I still enjoy the simple stuff like flying my Squeaky the Octopus Kite around the Berkeley Marina, going for a fun run along Crissy Field and the Golden Gate Bridge, watching the SF Ballet, attending a symphony, playing cloud pictionary, being immersed in a good book, reading The Economist, listening to NPR, watching TED, exploring a good museum exhibit, cooking up a new recipe, or just sipping a glass a wine watching the sunset from the balcony.
What I’m doing with my life
Living to explore, discover, learn, teach, and experience as much as I can. Paraphrasing Mae West, circa 1930s actress, she once said, "You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough."
I’m really good at
perseverance, having a wild imagination, making dreams a reality, audacity to question the norm, internet searches, making pecan-banana-cinnamon pancakes
The first things people usually notice about me
they have no idea what ethnicity I am, some random mix of the gene pool perhaps...haha

Music: all sorts of tunes...Pandora rules. classical, hiphop, rock, Disclosure, Sascha Funke, jazz, international beats, and the list goes on

Food: everything from burritos with guacamole, indian food, pasta, a scrumptious salad, breakfast for dinner, zebra (oh yeah it's delish), dessert, thai, chinese, but homecooked is always the best
The six things I could never do without
1) Global Travel (and Space Travel if I could)

3) Sunshine
4) Freedom to explore, discover, and question everything

6) Milk (yes milk, I always have 2 gallons of nonfat in the fridge)

On a typical Friday night I am
No typical Friday night. Could be working in the ED, doing a CrossFit WOD, training for another half-marathon, cooking up a new recipe at home while listening to Pandora, playing with my GoPro, or out with friends enjoying the best of the bay area.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm addicted to milk-- gotta' have 3 glasses a day.
