Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
After a 7 year stint in Portland, and 4 years in San Diego, 1 year
back in my home town of Chicago, and 1 year in Boston, I have moved
back to Chicago for the long haul. Several things that make me
unique. I am independent, ambitious, passionate, extroverted,
empathetic, compassionate, cerebral, and have a quirky sense of
humor. I really enjoy photography and I play the piano. I love to
sing karaoke, and watch other people who nail a song and give 'em
high five and you're like YEAH!. I also love going to movies,
although I won't go alone to a movie because part of the fun is
discussing the film after. When I have time, I like to cook - fav
dish to make is Thai Peanut Chicken. I also make killer brownies
from scratch, and ambrosia salad (JK).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Graduated pharmacy school in May 2013, and just finished two years
of residency training. Yes, residency like a physician. I enjoy the
daily challenge of being a clinical pharmacist; It requires
listening to what patients say as well as how they act and
carefully observing their mannerisms, and artfully explaining
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Speaking in front of large crowds, karaoke, and remembering random
pop-culture trivia. I also tend to recite long monologues from
movies in the middle of normal conversion to see if anyone notices.
Like from Wayne's World. Oh, and Pharming.
The first things people usually notice about me

I'm tall, smile a lot, and have quirky mannerisms. I'm funny, but
it's more of how I act than what I say, although I do occasionally
concoct gems such as, "have you heard of that rare medication side
effect called transient death syndrome?"

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Friends and family
2. My piano
3. Coffee (mostly dark blends, like Peet's Major Dickason's)
4. A good set of headphones + amp - it's amazing what you're
6. My cameras - Canon T70, Canon S80, Canon 60D
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
If a plane crashes on the border between Massachusetts and Rhode
Island, where do you bury the survivors?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
My ideal night would be dinner, followed by a night of rocking out
at a karaoke bar. Favorite songs are Jenny, 867-5309, My Sharona,
and All My Exes Live in Texas. And, you can't go wrong with Sweet
Caroline, especially towards the end of the night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can turn my apartment into a dance party in 90 seconds.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are extroverted, passionate about career, caring, have a good
sense of humor and can take a joke, and have a good balance between
career and personal life. Major bonus if you have the bravery to
sing karaoke. Also, please live in Chicago (Rockford is not
Chicago) - I'm not looking for a long distance relationship here.
