My self-summary
I was born in Tehran, grew up in Germany and recently moved to Philadelphia via Boston for residency. Not sure what the future holds, maybe I will go back to Europe or move to the west coast? I'm curious where life will take me and haven't planned out everything yet.

Traveling is a big part of my life, I've been to most continents, but there is still so much to discover and see. I love connecting with people all over the world and experiencing and getting to know all the different, beautiful cultures and have experienced quite a few adventures!

I'm an urban child, love cultural events and going out to dine and dance, but enjoy being out in the nature just as much. I love to go hiking, rock climbing and if you are into it, we should definitely go.
What I’m doing with my life
After years of doing research, finally getting back into practicing Medicine.
I’m really good at
almost anything, but singing.... the person enjoying my singing the most, is me :D
I mostly get compliments for my artwork, the delicious meals I prepare and my dancing!
You haven´t heard of me yet? ;)
The first things people usually notice about me
... is my smile and my cheerfulness!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

German classical literature (Thomas Mann, Günter Grass, Bertolt Brecht, Hesse, Kafka, Dürrenmatt, Rilke...), Camus, Beckett, some English literature (Fitzgerald, Huxley, Oscar Wilde...)

Music to listen to at home:
Beirut, The Xx, Sia, Lykke Li, Fanfarlo, Angus and Julia Stone, Kings of Convenience, Phoenix, Ratatat, Noah And The Whale, Florian Ostertag, Two Door Cinema Club, MGMT, The whitest boy alive, Pink Floyd, Neil Young, Telepopmusik

All the bands named above and new ones that my friends recommend. Classical music. I even discovered blue grass lately!

Music to dance to:
Elektro, charts, RnB, sometimes latin too
It´s too sad Americans have never heard of the Bukovina club. You guys are really missing out on a lot of fun dancing to Russian disco sounds!

Would like to start watching some old Hollywood movies too.
The six things I could never do without
Music, fun, friends, art, nature and my bike ... and so many other things!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to change the world... I somehow seem to have given up after my first attempts but might pick up on that again! After working for multiple NGOs, Doctors without Borders, and Physicians for Social Responsibility as a student, I am looking into getting engaged as a doctor as well. First need to finish this residency thing though...

Whether free will exists or not and what consequences it has on our lives and our jurisdication/ tolerance towards misbehaviour and crime.

Access to essential medicines, poverty, globalization and how lucky I am!
On a typical Friday night I am
Maybe out dancing with you or cuddling on my couch watching a movie
You should message me if
You are like-minded, generous, kind, self-driven and passionate, and aren't just content with the status quo. If you think pursuit of personal happiness is just as important as finding effective ways to change the world.
