My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing"

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.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Resident physician at Columbia-Presbyterian by day (and sometimes by night), going into cardiology in the long run. Translation: hours of exhaustion punctuated by moments of terror.

Outside of work? Making my time at work sound more exciting by jargonizing my day. Wearing out black sharpies while circling upcoming shows and events in Time Out. Slowly exploring more of Central Park.

By night? Trying to find those elusive dive bars that are quiet enough to hear your companions but loud enough to be lively, or back at an apartment slinging cocktails with too many ingredients. Recuperating on a couch and getting in the aforementioned yawning time; sometimes with friends, often with Netflix.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-Using my guitar to acoustically accompany other peoples' stories
-Snowboarding
-Reading (seriously, I'm already reading at a 5th or even 6th grade level)
-Cooking (I miss having a larger kitchen, but I still rock the occasional creme brulee or cast iron seared steak)
-Auscultation and percussion
The first things people usually notice about me

Really too many to list... I could talk music forever.

Food
Anything with spice to it - Indian, Thai, and Vietnamese (especially pho). Korean BBQ.
The terrible bagels the hospital has catered for us.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Uptodate
2. A steady stream of uniball-signo 207 blue ink pens (and moleskin notebooks)
3. My espresso machine
4. A city or a mountain to explore
5. Awkward silences
6. ...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-Possibility and potential; peoples' narratives and how lives can be changed so quickly and by such random events, both major and minor
-Witty replies and/or honest advice
-Hearts (physiologically, not the card game. Seriously, the cascade of events that's happening in you every heartbeat, 50-100 times a minute, is endlessly fascinating)
-How I would be a better person if I stopped watching TV (immediately followed by thinking about how good this episode is and how I can't wait to find out what happens next...)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either:
-Deep in conversation with good friends over drinks of one sort or another
-Watching a movie, either via Netflix or in a theater
-Trapped in the hospital
-Out and about, preferably trying someplace I haven't been before in the Village or Brooklyn
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
As much as I like to approach life vigorously, I do need introspective downtime to rejuvenate afterwards - preferably with black coffee, mimosas, warm sunlight, and large sunglasses.

There, I said it, I have a brunch problem.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
-You want to get lost in conversation and argue about David Foster Wallace over pretentious cocktails or unpretentious beer.
-You're passionate about something - you don't have to love your work, but you have to love something enough that you get excited when you talk about it.
-There's a show or exhibit you want to catch, or you want to go rock climbing or do something active.

But most importantly:
-You can challenge me. I strive to surround myself with people that can push me to be more artistic and creative, more social, more thoughtful, more kind, more dynamic, and more me.
-You're one of the mad ones.
