I'm currently in medical school, and hoping to go into pediatrics when I finish. I've always wanted to be that quirky doctor that wears bow ties and makes kids smile all day, even when they're feeling sick. I did my undergrad at Washington Lee University where I majored in biochem and consequently named my dog after one of the founders of thermodynamics, Gibbs. He's a 50 lb bundle of joy that mistakenly thinks he's a lap dog; I think it's wonderful.
I enjoy discovering fun restaurants in the KC area. I'll try anything once. My current favorite is Indian food, but anything spicy will do. I also love cooking at home on my own and for friends. My baking skills are decent, but could probably use improvement. I'd love to find a girl that would enjoy sharing the kitchen with me, this way we could both learn a thing or too.
My favorite way to get outside is to go backpacking or camping. This past year I hiked around 350 miles of the Appalachian Trail. The eclectic people you meet along the way really makes the experience. I'd enjoy finding a girl that shares a passion for being outdoors as much as I do, even though I'm not necessarily looking for someone that needs to be that intense. Most of all, I'm looking for a best friend.
Just for fun, here are some excerpts from my bucket list:
- Visit Ireland
- Learn to ballroom dance
- Camp in, or at least visit, every national park
- Get published
- Go sky diving
- Go on a medical mission trip
- Learn to whistle
- Sleep in a castle
- Eat fugo
- Read every novel that has won the Pulitzer prize for fiction
