1st n 4most i'm a surgery resident so that takes up most of my time (but i'm almost done :) ...but i still squeeze in time for other passions: ....i am addicted to working-out/weight-l ifting & have a blackbelt in various martial arts. 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 travelling and experiencing different cultures & learning at least the basics of new languages - i went to a medical school 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). to say i care deeply about israel is an understatement.
