Introspective and quiet, but at times ridiculous. Overall, generally pleasant. I’m Persian by culture, born and raised in Texas. I went to college in Massachusetts, in Dallas for graduate work and recently spent my time working as a resident in surgery in New York, which although at times trying, was a source of deep satisfaction. I enjoy the company of loved ones - family and friends, and I’m happiest when we come together to make new memories. As an older brother I can be protective, but loving. As an amateur cook I can be creative, but risky. And, as I discovered as a Yankee fan in Boston, I’m just plain stubborn. I’m looking for someone to share my time with. In the past I’ve been most compatible with individuals who harbor a flame of passion – for anything. I find that people who can find meaning in their personal lives can find it in relationships as well. My latest obsession? Vampire Weekend - check them out.
