My self-summary
I'm a fun loving guy, looking to share awesome experiences with someone special. I love the outdoors and nature. What I'm doing with my life? Studying medicine, gonna become a surgeon most likely cause I'm good with my hands. I am also a painter, had a studio in SF for over a year. Been working on a lot of new pieces this summer
What I’m doing with my life
I studied Molecular Biology and Art at Berkeley, now off for the summer from med school, traveling, doing research, business ventures, working weekends at farmers markets, having fun.
I’m really good at
Anything Physical (sports, etc..) - I used to play football and boxed in college. Also rock climbing and martial arts. I like sailing and playing soccer. I'm very strong for my size, I bench 360 and squat 500. Ran tough mudder in Boston in June which was a lot if fun. I also love to climb mountains and swim in icy lakes in the high sierras.

Cooking- I have developed a great taste for food and became quite skilled to nourish my appetite. I am certain that I could have even made a career out of it :)

Painting- I studied painting and sculpture with Richard Shaw, Craig Nagasawa and Squeek Carnwath at UC Berkeley. My dad is a talented painter as well. I had a studio in SF for a year after college. I continue to paint, mainly in oils. I love texture and color that I apply to develop conceptually complex concepts in striking visual form.
The first things people usually notice about me
