Hi there! I am a first year surgery resident new to NOLA. Im originally from South Florida, where I grew up swimming and sailing and terrorizing the local lizard and frog population. Ive since experimented with living in a volkswagon camper, a tent on a commune, a villa on the Caribbean sea, and many other variations on the general theme of awesome. Overall I am a very happy person who is very excited and satisfied with my life. I am often described as vivacious and energetic, and I tend towards being sarcastic and feisty when I can get away with it. I have two dogs and two cats, and would have more if I could. Im physically active, and prefer to do some form of exercise every day. I was a long distance swimmer until recently, and crunchy shoulder joints permitting, would like to get back into it sometime soon. Im very close to my family, admire my parents a lot, and although I am not very observant right now, Judaism means a lot to me and does have an influence on my daily life. I care about ethics, being good to people, and making a positive impact on the world. I think I am a big nerd, in the sexiest sense possible.
