My self-summary
I am an academic at heart. I perform biomedical research, and I am always excited to learn about new work in the field. I'm also very concerned (if less well-informed) about social justice, and I alway enjoy expanding my intellectual horizons.

But I don't spend all my time locked away in an ivory tower. I like sports, especially tennis, soccer, and running, and I love a good night out on the town. Whether it's for a serious conversation or just a bit of light-hearted banter, it's always fun to meet interesting new people.

I am motivated, active, and thoughtful
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently in my second year of a combined MD/PhD program. It's going to be a while, but I enjoy the day to day.
I’m really good at
Finding unintentional humor in everyday situations. Acknowledging the comedies of the day to day makes life much more enjoyable. I try not to take myself too seriously.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm passionate about my interests and relate them well... usually. When you work in the sciences, you start to take an amazing amount of jargon for granted. It's suprisingly hard to avoid the intermittent slip into intimdating technobabble.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Hugo, Dumas, Carroll, Hesse, Kafka, among others, are excellent. That said, sometimes junk fiction just hits the spot.

I also enjoy medical/science/social justice non-fiction. Although the latter (along with the news) is depressing in large doses.

Movies: An occassional comedy or action flick is nice. My friends are amazingly good at convincing me to see the worst movies (I mean, how many people actually watched 10,000 BC?).

TV: I haven't had one for a long time, but Netflix is there for me if I need a fix.

Music: I hear eclectic is trendy way to say I find most music agreeable.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Social justice. A large part of my interest in medicine/research is to contribute to the betterment of other's lives. However, properly prioritizing our citizens by reforming and investing in infrastructure, healthcare, and education could likely improve far more lives than any equivalent investment in biomedical research (at least in the near future). What good are new therapies to the multitude lacking the essentials for health and happiness?
On a typical Friday night I am
Going out with friends or just relaxing at home after a week of work. Saturday is a great day for busy outings, but usually keep Fridays low-key (alcohol and sleep-deprivation are not my winning combination).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
For a short period in high school I had terrible, long hair... which I kept around just long enough for my photo license. Needless to say, I was a very conservative driver those first few years.
You should message me if
If you'd like to discuss common interests, or to just meet someone new.
