“Success is when at the end of one’s life one can say the world is a better place for one having been there.” I try to live my life in accordance with this quote. My friends and family would describe me as an easy-going person who is fun-to-be-with, who is also considerate, friendly, good-natured, and personable. I like to look at situations with a glass half full, and pride myself on being dependable.
I grew up in Pittsburgh (so yes, I’m a Steelers fan!) in a traditional Jewish home. I really enjoy being outdoors and spending my free time biking, swimming, skiing, hiking, and camping. I also love to travel and just got back from trekking in Patagonia! Although I have less leisure time these days as an internal medicine resident, I do my best to stay active. When I'm not in the hospital, I enjoy exploring Seattle with friends and traveling around the pacific northwest. While I love being active, I also enjoy cooking dinner and relaxing with a good movie or an addictive TV show. I’m always looking for an adventure and opportunities to meet new people.
