My self-summary
Day job: ER doc. DC metro area-born, Chicago-educated, and New York at heart. An oldest child, an omnivore, an ENFP.

When it comes to writing profiles, I think we’re better at naming the trees, than describing the forest. That said, here are my parts: Audacious, perspicacious. Quick to laugh. Always got your back. I don’t flake, I show gratitude, and I always pay my debts. I know myself, head to toe, and tend to get a good read on others quickly.
What I’m doing with my life
Spent the last two months traveling after leaving my last job. Thailand to train Muay Thai, hiking around Yellowstone and Grand Teton, WY, and an agenda-less week in Lisbon.
I’m really good at
Boring answer: my job. It only resembles TV about 5% of the time. The other 95% is a mixture of putting out small fires, reversing bad human decisions, and playing the role of line cook in a bizarre sort of medical Burger King. That said, the 5% is my favorite.

Improvising. Accents and learning languages (Russian at the moment). Hitting the target no one else can see (bonus points if you know the quote). I'm a good writer, but want to be something more than casually "good".

Muay Thai is a love, though not anything I would do for a living. Pretty decent skier and table tennis player. Enjoy hiking and am always looking for new hikes. I also regularly do many things I'm naturally awful at, like running and yoga.
The first things people usually notice about me
It's different every time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This Key & Peele skit:

Westworld, Master of None, GoT, Narcos, Quarry. Just finished Rome, which was phenomenal.

Eternal Sunshine, Before Sunset, Whiplash, Silver Linings Playbook, Let the Right One In, Godfather Pt 1, Pulp Fiction, Blue Valentine

Built to Spill, The Dears, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Andrew Bird, Arcade Fire, Sigur Ros, Rolling Stones, Oasis, RHCP, Zeppelin, Explosions in the Sky, Sea Wolf, Portishead, Phantogram, Sufjan Stevens, Mr Little Jeans.

A number of podcasts. Hardcore History is one of the most rewarding things I've ever listened to. Freakonomics, Planet Money, TAL are all good.
The six things I could never do without
Sore muscles, a good sweat, and maybe even a bruise or two.

Followed by a cold beer or rye, neat.

A fall wardrobe.

Asking questions to the internet.

A healthy working body. There's just nothing like it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The human microbiome. Writing a story that a million people will want to read. People's body language. Subway behavior. Which sense I would miss the most (smell is the dark horse candidate). How we're living in the golden age of opening credits for TV shows.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't feel that privately about my life, so nothing specific comes to mind, but you may ask away without reservation.
You should message me if
you're strong and self-actualized, have a ferocious intellect, require a foil for your trenchant wit.
