I was born in Israel to American parents who decided along the way that making "aliyah" was a bit harder than the flashy brochures of the 1970's made it out to be. To that end, my parents moved back to the U.S. when I was only a wee lad (hence, my Hebrew skills are embarrassingly poor, much to the chagrin of my mother, who was the Hebrew teacher in our Jewish community). I grew-up in middle America (Iowa, to be exact) and have stuck around the Midwest for most of my life (with the exception, of course, of traveling by plane, train, automobile, motorcycle and tuk tuk through over 30 countries). I went to Wash U for undergrad and grad school, then took a year off to work in Japan before returning to Chicago for med school and a PhD in chemical engineering. Having finished that and my intern year, I moved to St. Louis in 2012 for residency (I'm specializing in Ophthalmology--yes, I'm an eye guy). I'm a stone's throw away from finishing residency and am excited to reach the end of what has been a very long road.
I'd like to meet someone fun, funny, compassionate, kind, wicked smart and, of course, beautiful (both inside and out).
