Thanks for taking the time to read my profile! I am looking for someone who lives in the US currently. It's just easier to get to know someone when you're on the same continent. Please also provide contact info when sending an interest so that we can chat more easily.
As far as the basics go, I was born and raised in the USA (the Midwest) and currently live in St. Louis where I am a post-doc at Wash U. I completed my residency in internal medicine as of June 2014. I'll be applying for a fellowship in a medicine subspecialty this summer so I'll likely be moving again next year. I'm actually second generation born outside of India--my parents are from East Africa and lived in the UK and Brazil before coming to the US in the 80s. I've been to India and the UK to visit family several times and am grateful to have had the chance to visit all the places where my parents have lived.
My hobbies include gardening, photography, reading, cooking and baking. I've gotten... more into yoga in a big way since moving to St. Louis. I studied martial arts for about 15 years but couldn't find a school I liked here, so I made the switch to yoga and attend class four days a week. I love the fitness aspect of it just as much as the meditative aspect. I also love movies, a huge array of music ranging from classical to Afghan pop to industrial, and watching horse racing and soccer (ahem, football). I played piano for 15 years--my favorite composer is Chopin, even though I can barely reach half the chords in most of his pieces--although my cats use my piano more than I do right now. I'm hoping to pick it up again when I have more time!
Personality-wise, I'm loyal, easy going and down-to-earth but am also very focused and hard-working. I can be as serious as I can be silly and I love to laugh. I always appreciate an adventurous spirit, an open mind, and a great sense of humor. I've been quite independent for most of my life but I'm definitely looking for the special person to complement my personal qualities. I'm looking for someone who can keep up with me in spirited debates, shares my curiosity about the world, isn't afraid to try something new (including assorted baked goods that might be passed your way), and can laugh at themselves and the silly things life throws our way.
If you made it this far through my profile, you've probably noticed that I don't drink alcohol. It doesn't stop me from having fun and I don't mind if my partner drinks in moderation.
That's all I can think of for now, but profiles are always an evolving work in progress so I'm sure I'll have more to add later. Feel free to reach out and say hello!
