1st n 4most i'm a new surgeon (trauma & critical care) so that takes up most of my time ...but i still squeeze in time for other passions: ....i am addicted to working-out/weight-l ifting & I am almost religious about martial arts. but I'm also religious about ;) & love Jewish law & Jewish mysticism. i write music on guitar, lyrics/poetry/screen plays, sing. i love learning about anything and everything from art history to quantum physics. i believe in compassion. i love people, i love animals, i love partying like an animal, i love traveling and experiencing different cultures & learning at least the basics of new languages - i went to a medical school (like 8yrs ago now; I'm getting old!;) that gets you ready to do and requires you to do "doctors without borders" work in 3rd world countries (i.e., lived a couple months in ethiopia, etc) and would like to get back into doing medical missions (since I had no time at all during my 6yr surgery residency & then trauma surgery/ICU fellowship). to say i care deeply about israel is an understatement.
