I'm a true blue New Yorker, grew up in Brooklyn, went to college and medical school in NYC.
I'm a neurology resident. I have a passion for understanding how the brain works, cognition, disorders that affect the brain, etc.
When I'm not working/studying, I'm a pretty laid back and simple person. I like music (indie-rock, oldies stuff), art (photography and avant-garde), architecture (bridges are my favorite) and philosophy. I love going to concerts/live shows. I also love nature/being outdoors, biking and running.
What else. I'm a big Mets fan. Some things that make me laugh are Calvin and Hobbes, The New Yorker comics, The Onion, and my baby niece (she's a riot).
