MBTI: INTJ in my personal life, but an ENTJ at work; Type A Personality
I completed my undergrad at NYU studying Economics and Chemistry (Yes. I am a nerd), in hopes of one day finding the missing link between the social and hard sciences. Specifically, I'm interested in the field of game theory, applied mathematics, and social/behavioral sciences and how these concepts can be applied to medicine. For two years, I worked at a company in NJ as a practitioner using neuroplasticity to treat patients with ADHD, autism, dementia, Alzheimer's, and TBI/concussions. The summer after I left my job, I spent my final weeks in NYC (mostly in Brooklyn & Manhattan) before moving to Cleveland for a brief grad school stint.
Recently, I completed my graduate program at Case Med and moved back into the city to work mostly for the clinical side of healthcare: doing clinical research in the Neurology ICU department, running my own non-profit against child obesity, and dabbing in the consulting industry here and there.
This past May I backpacked western Europe and hit 15 cities in 3 weeks. I'm quite the efficient traveler. :)
Movies: TiMER, Sliding Doors, Cafe, Casanova, Original Sin, 500 Days of Summer, Inception, W;t, People Will Talk, Beautiful Mind, The Imitation Game (this movie reminded me of another great biography "Tesla - Man Out of Time" that I finished reading recently), The Duchess, Colonia, Under the Hawthorne Tree, House of Flying Daggers, Law Abiding Citizen, The Shining, 28 Days Later, Zombieland,Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead, Suckerpunch, Kickass, Fantastic Mr. Fox,Moonrise Kingdom, Up, Ratatouille, Cabin in the Woods (thanks to an incredibly persuasive debater usernamephobic)
Literature: NYT, WSJ, and any current bestsellers
I absolutely love reading. If that needs quantifying, that means I'll generally read up to 90 - 120 books/year depending on how busy that year turns out to be. I'll also pretty much read anything anyone recommends to me. If you have a good book, article, column, comic strip, or topic to peruse, etc... I'm always up for suggestions.
Food: Italian, Mediterranean, French, Thai, Japanese, Korean, Afghan, homemade Chinese, and an assortment of desserts that I indulge in on occasion.
Ultimately, I try to maintain a healthy lifestyle both physically and mentally.
Music: I'm a classicist at heart, but also yes to jazz and rock.
Sports I Watch: Hockey, Soccer, Tennis
Sports I Play/Entertain: Epee Fencing, Tennis, Table Tennis, Running, Skiing
I dance on my commute to work.
I need a full-time secretary to handle my OKC account... (I respond in bulk.)
I almost pursued a career as a professional violinist at one point in my life.
I was East Coast Tetris champion in 2010.
And, I eat my candy the way sick Americans pop pills.
Cheers to you all and hope those in search of love find it.
