I'm originally from L.A., and have been in southern cal pretty much my whole life; I lived in San Diego for nearly 5 years for college, and ended up back in LA for graduate school. Sometimes I wish I could have had the chance to live outside socal for at least a little while, but after visiting some of my east coasts friends during the winter, maybe not so much...
I'm a pretty active person and try to get in some form of exercise at least a few times a week, whether it be running, hiking, going to the gym, etc. Sports are definitely another one of my passions, love watching pro/college football, boxing, mma, nba, pretty much anything!
I recently finished my graduate program, and after working for a year, I'm back in a second residency. Although it's been really time consuming, I love what i'm learning and the people I'm with!
Residency has taken up a big chunk of my life and as such, I've found that it's just so hard to meet new people outside of my program and circle of friends still in the area.
It took me a while to get over the stigma attached to online dating, but after hearing the experiences of some of my friends, I decided to give it a go.
While I take my work and education seriously, I'd love to be able to make time for the right person; someone who's about ready to settle down (but not necessarily get married or have kids yet!), who values their friends and family, and who loves and is committed to their education and career.
