My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've got to consider myself very lucky. I have a wonderful family and friends and have gotten to do a fair amount of great stuff along the way. I lived in West Africa (Burkina Faso) for a couple years while in the Peace Corps and another two in Japan teaching English. Traveling is important to me and I imagine another bout of living abroad is in my future.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I moved to KC a few months ago for med school. I guess it was inevitable that I'd head towards becoming a doctor- I've worn boat shoes since the 8th grade.

Good books and art have always been important to me...although with all of my recent schooling I'm becoming a somewhat of a science geek.

Disclaimer: I was traveling up until just a few days before school started and long story short, my car is in Portland for the time being.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Parcheesi and's actually quite embarrassing how seriously I take parcheesi

Update: won the last parcheesi match during Thanksgiving 2013!!!
(Note: refrained from doing the Okazuma triumphal stomp.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I try to be a vegetarian, but bacon is so damn good. I also wish I ate more pie....and good coffee is wonderful. My friends and family take the cake, though
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
-I can be a bit snobbish about books. I was an English major in college and when people ask what I read, I tend to answer 'literature'....using air-quotations like an asshole; I try not to be an asshole.

-While in the Peace Corps, a village woman named Tibo, but who I called Yaaba (meaning 'grandmother' in Moore), brought a sickly child to my house while the head of the village's health clinic was out for a couple days. She believed me to be a doctor, despite my constant protestations. Yaaba asked me for medicine for the child, explaining that the child had a malady of the stomach. There was no doubt that the child was in a bad way. Regardless of this, it had been drilled in my head not to give out medications to villagers. (We had been given a kit w/ thermometer, gauze and hydrogen peroxide, tylenol etc.) 'If you start doling out articles from your personal kit, you'll open a pandora's box and you'll get requests and demands w/ no end. Furthermore, these supplies are for YOUR health and well-being.' I told Tibo that I had nothing for the child. (I rationalized this by thinking, what have I got?...Pepto won't help- the girl clearly has some sort of parasitical infection.) Tibo brought the child to my house for three successive days, asking me kindly to help; I refused her each time. When the head of the health clinic finally came back, he informed me that we would be going to the funeral of Tibo's granddaughter the next day and that we should go to her house to express our condolences.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You can talk intelligently about art or books or history or architecture or Indian basket-making or the finer points of an Indian curry- anything, really, as long as you have something to say.
