My self-summary
I would have to say the thing I am most passionate about is learning and experiencing new things. I am in the midst of a career change from being a system architect (engineer) working on things like the space program and telecommunications now going back to school to turn a hobby into a profession. I Fell in love with the elegance of the human design at the molecular and system level and well... one thing led to another and found myself in the middle of becoming a physician-scientist. I know its strange now at this stage in life... but thats how it worked out for me.

I have lived all over the US (7 places in all) and came to NYU for my Residency. I am relatively new to the NYC area (6/15) and still getting acclimated and learning the city. For the last 8 years I have been in Boston. I do enjoy traveling, nature, and just simply walking around the city on a summer day. I have traveled all across the US and many places over seas, mostly Europe so far.

Very few things ruffle my feathers and usually pretty easy going about things. Plus I am pretty open minded/non-judgemental kinda person so nothing really offends me either. So feel free to ask me anything.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to constantly improve myself one day at a time. That said, I work in health care and trying to blend Research in with my clinical practice. Starting a new chapter in my life in NYC, which I never expected to be living in.
I’m really good at
I am good at listening and looking at issues from all sides and different perspectives. In addition I am good at setting out personal goals and continuing to expand my knowledge and awareness. I am also good at finding new adventures and unique experiences.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I can be rather technical/geeky and quite serious about my work. However, underneath all that I can joke around be quite lighthearted about issues too. Really I can.... Really... ;)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
In general SciFi is my favorite genre for books and movies, but
like Action, Comedy, drama generally in that order.
Books: Alfred Bester (Demolished Man), Robert Heinlein (Moon is aHarsh Mistress), Phillip K. Dick (Man in the High Castle), NancyKress (Beggars in Spain), Connie Willis (Doomsday book), Man in the High Castle (PKD, The amazon series has not disappointed me but it is a bit of a divergent from the original), Orson Scott Card (Pastwatch: The Redemption of Christopher Columbus/Ender's Game) to name a few.

Movies: Cabin in the woods, Lord of the Rings, Avatar, Star Trek, Star Wars, Matrix, Terminator and some animes (Ghost in the Shell). Some comedy like 40 Year Old Virgin, Grosse Point Blank, Scott Pilgrim, and many horror films for a good scare. I find that the dramas of independents are much more interesting than what Hollywood ever does, so often trek to Kendall for a movie. Some of the long term favorite dramas include Shawshank Redemption, Casablanca, Secretary, Garden State, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Memento, Good Will Hunting, and many others.

TV: Firefly (SHOULD still be on) and anything by Joss Whedon, True Blood, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Dexter, The Knick, Breaking Bad, Westworld, Dr. Who, American Horror Story, The Following, The Fall (BBC), Newsroom. I also Like comedy - The Daily Show, John Oliver, Family Guy, Futurama, and Simpsons.

I am a bit of a Foodie and love trying new restaurants. There
really isn't any food I wouldn't try, save for liver. My favorites
are Sushi, Indian, or simply just Pizza. Anything with Molasses... Ginger molasses cookies, Homemade Gingerbread (I can make it), and Gingersnap molasses ice cream from Toscanini's - YUMMM and do miss it!!!!!

Radio/Podcasts: NPR, PHC, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, Radiolab, More Perfect (check it out)

Travel - I have been quite fortunate to get to travel to Brazil,
Russia, and most of Western European countries. I have many more locales I really want to see. I love learning about ancientcultures, so still wanna see Egypt, Greece, and Peru - Anythingwith Ancient Ruins - SOON! I also have had a long-standing goal to get to Antarctica in this lifetime.
Six things I could never do without
1. Coffee
2. Working out (Yoga mostly but need residency has derailed this a bit)
3. Phrenic Nerve - "3 4 5 keeps the diaphragm alive"
4. NPR junkie
5. Down time now and then
6. Internet/iphone (getting dis-illusioned with Apple)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How the Human body was engineered. To me medicine/research is one big reverse engineering project.

My new favorite quote:
‘A healthy body is the guest-chamber of the soul; a sick, its prison.’
Francis Bacon

Non-work related.....

On a typical Friday night I am
Go out to dinner with friends, sometimes a movie, or even just walking around the town.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I also have a spiritual side too that is continually evolving.

A few words of caution: I am not just pretty - Very liberal in my views, so if you voted for Trump - "SHUDDER!!!. In addition, If you think the GOP or any Republican affilation is where its at....Then Ummmmm you probably shouldn't message me or respond.
