My self-summary
"A few disclaimers:

-I can't whistle, blow bubbles with bubble gum, or roll my r’s. Speaking Spanish can be challenging for me.

- I’m afraid of snakes.

-My sister calls me Bucko. I’m not sure why. It’s not my name.

Now that that’s out of the way, here is more information about me:

I moved to San Francisco from Philadelphia in the summer of 2009 after finishing my medical training in Philadelphia. I moved here because I have family here (my sister, brother-in-law, and niece), and because I REALLY like the area! I missed seeing sunsets when I lived in Philly.

I can't say enough about this area! One weekend, I'm on this incredible hike above the fog line and watching reflections of pink and orange off the cottonball-like clouds from the sunset. The next weekend, I'm roaming around North Beach, Chinatown, and Jackson Square, on a city-wide evening treasure hunt with an amazing Chinese New Year Parade and coursing through fascinated crowds. This city just has a mystique to it.

I've got my career. I've worked hard to get to this point, and I think I lucked out too. I'm making some good friends in my new city. Ultimately, I'm looking for a partner now with whom to share adventures and perhaps even stand in line with to get ice cream at Bi Rite!
What I’m doing with my life
I'm fortunate to be able to have exactly the career I've wanted for myself. I'm a physician, with a solo private practice and I get to work with kids.

I spend a couple of hours a week painting, while listening to music and sometimes wondering how that time can flash by so quickly.
I’m really good at
I can draw a map of the U.S. on a napkin just like Senator Al Franken.
Spotting dolphins.

Things I'm not so good at:

Blowing bubbles with bubble gum.
I can't roll my r's :(
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
All time favorites so far:
The Master and Margarita - the devil visits early Communist-era Moscow. Full of allegory and even a talking cat with an edge about him!
All The King's Men (the best prose I have ever read)

Music: It's very hard for me to narrow down this category. My ipod is pretty diverse.

Food: I can't bring myself to eat a runny egg yolk. Besides that, I'm not that picky. I like Indian food a lot. When I visit Texas, I cannot resist good BBQ.
The six things I could never do without
Red wine.
Petting the occasional outgoing cat.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next hike.
On a typical Friday night I am
There doesn't seem to be a typical Friday night for me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think I've seen a ghost once. No kidding! There's a story behind it.
You should message me if
You're comfortable in your own skin and you have a reasonable idea of where you are and where you're going in life. ...and you don't have a pet snake (see self summary!).
