Originally, I am from Upstate, NY. I've lived in the Caribbean and Europe. Oddly enough, people confuse my accent and my mannerisms as that of a Canadian. Maybe I don't have a harsh accent of a Syracuse-an nor do I have the impolite mannerisms of your typical NY-er? You'll find me as that guy that can go up to anyone and find his or her life story out in the course of conversation, and immediately gain a new friend. I recently graduated from EVMS and will be practicing in the VA Beach area. During my studies, I've had the opportunity to meet a vast array of people. Most of the people I encounter are a bit out of my age demographic. Albeit wonderful when I receive hugs and kisses on the cheek from our senior citizen patients, I want more. I've been set up by these helpful people with granddaughters/niece s/neighbors/etc. It's been great so far, but I figured that I'd give this site a try and see what Virginia has to offer.
