My self-summary
I'm a global citizen.

I carry 3 passports, was raised in 5 countries, educated in the US and recently moved to LA after 8 years on the east coast.

Every day I treat the sick. They teach me to embrace life, so I try to live it in the most meaningful way I can.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an emergency medicine doctor. After residency, the plan is to either pay off my loans, live on a boat, and travel everywhere or do an aerospace medicine fellowship and apply to the astronaut program.

If I have more than a week off, I go abroad. I recently hitchhiked across New Zealand and just bought a flight to Cuba.
I’m really good at
Analyzing. Figuring out the individual steps required to accomplish my goals. Constant self growth/improvement.

On a lighter note, I'm an amateur chef working on the perfect medium rare steak. I like salsa and will gladly dance until the sun rises. I played D1 rugby in college and still love a physical challenge. I also really like board games.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm easy to talk to and open minded. I also usually get asked why I don't look Hispanic with a name like Fernando.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I am an avid reader, but picking a favorite book is very difficult. My IB English class taught me to enjoy classical literature, but I also like reading series such as Game of Thrones, The Wheel of Time, and of course, Harry Potter. I mostly read fantasy, with some science fiction and historical fiction.

I try not to watch TV much.

I love almost every kind of cuisine. Mexican and Thai food are probably my favorites, and even took a Thai cooking course while I was visiting.

As far as music goes, I like almost everything except country music and top 40.
Six things I could never do without
Curiosity, companionship, competitive sports, goals, my passports, and delicious food and drink.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think a lot about where my next adventure will go, why the American public has such a poor understanding of science (climate change denial? not believing in evolution?), and what I can do about it.

I'm also trying to cultivate a more sustainable and less materialistic life style.
On a typical Friday night I am
Roll the dice: I could be working, sleeping, out at a bar or restaurant with friends, hosting a dinner party, dancing salsa, on a road trip, or playing board games.
You should message me if
You're confident, intellectually curious, and have a sense of adventure.

Also, if you'd like to show a new comer to LA around, that would be great.
