Someone interested in getting to know me should be aware of the following; I am a very complex person and there are many aspects of my life that I am very passionate about. I think that a person needs to be passionate about life or it isn't worth living. My first love is medicine. I am currently a medical student at Dartmouth and I chose the field because I want my work in life to be something that I enjoy and that allows me to help others have a better quality of life as well. I also enjoy reading and have quite an eclectic taste in literature. I'm not all books and studying though. I have quite a unique and pervasive sense of humor and must be able to laugh and enjoy whatever I am doing. I don't think that one should take life too seriously all of the time or you miss out on a lot of what life has to offer. My favorite TV program is The Simpsons and my favorite sports team is the Boston Red Sox. A long time hobby of mine is swimming. Also, I have a competitive side and enjoy playing squash and basketball with friends. I am very serious about the music that I listen to as I feel it adds a soundtrack to my life and often reflects how I am feeling at the time. I am hoping to meet someone who can connect with me on many levels and with whom I can be myself.
