I'm currently a graduate student at Georgia Tech in the Biomedical Engineering department and a medical student at the Emory University School of Medicine. I graduated from MIT with a degree in Chemical-Biological Engineering in 2009. Worked two years in Boston in research at MGH. My early days were spent in South Georgia.
Although I consider myself a huge dork, I'm still a lot of fun. I enjoy spending time with my friends out a bar or club. If you put a drink in my hand, I will drink it.
I also enjoy talking to people who are passionate and motivated. Understanding what drives the interests of others helps me see the world around me in a different way.
I would describe myself as a fun, caring, and supportive person. I aspire to grow in some way everyday. I enjoy being around other people and I appreciate opportunities to help others realize their potential. I usually pick out the positive qualities I see in someone and forget about the negatives.
After dating for a long time, I've become more interested in dating someone I feel is compatible with me holistically. I'm looking for a person who can play an integral role in my life. I want to date someone who can also be my best friend. I know this is hard to find, but I won't settle for anything else. My interest on here is to meet people and determine if I am compatible with them in that way. If this isn't what you are looking for, then I am not the person for you.
