I'm a native Tucsonan, born and raised, but spent most of the last decade living elsewhere, in 5 countries on 4 continents, studying, teaching and traveling.
There's nothing I like better than exploring: other countries, cultures, languages, cuisines and interesting people. Here in town I'm looking for new trails, good food, and live music.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in the middle of medical school, with all the spare time that
that implies, but I like to make the most of it when I've got it.
and trying new restaurants are my
distractions of choice in town.
I’m really good at
Spontaneous planning. Languages

The six things I could never do without

I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next adventure (Australia? Yellowstone? Chile?). My next
challenge (med school. Arabic? guitar?). Far-away friends.

Cooking dinner, then either drinks and maybe dancing or game night
with good friends.
