Hey there, I'm Mike. I'm a resident surgeon in New Jersey. I'm an easy-going, fun-loving guy who's in constant search of new ways to feel alive.
I love music. I love listening to it, playing it, writing it, and going to concerts. Music can transport me to the most amazing places. I'm into all genres (except for country) from jazz to electronic, rock, indie, soul, and even the really, really weird. I studied music in college and still play guitar regularly. I try to take advantage of my short fits of creativity to occasionally write and record.
I'm a pretty big geek. If it's about science, I'm almost immediately engrossed. I've had some great memories watching shows about supernovae and black holes late at night on the Discovery channel. Video games, while taking up less of my life recently, are still a part of my geekiness. They're usually ones with interesting storylines or atmosphere, e.g. Mass Effect.
Although I haven't been able to do so very much recently, I enjoy traveling. The new experiences, the new people, even the just the feel of a foreign world are all fascinating.
