I can't claim to never yawn, but I otherwise agree with Kerouac completely - life is meant to be explored thoroughly and lived passionately. I'm fond of whiskey-fueled explorations of Manhattan and Brooklyn and espresso-fueled late night, soul-baring conversations about what makes people tick. I love live music and dead painters; I like blue politics and red wine.
I was born in Dallas but fell in love with the mountains at an early age and moved to Colorado for undergrad and med school. I'm now a resident physician at Columbia in Internal Medicine and absolutely love what I do. I can swap medical stories (ask me about my time in the ER in particular) or chat about my obsession with cardiac physiology forever, but most of the time I would rather talk about the best oyster bar happy hour in town, or the most intriguing album I've heard lately, or your favorite author.
