"I am no one special...just a common man with common thoughts. I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten. But in one respect, I've succeeded as gloriously as anyone who's ever lived. I've loved another with all my heart and soul and for me that has always been enough." --James Garner from The Notebook
The quote above describes me in ways more than one. I'm a physician at NYU Medical Center. I've had the privilege to care for countless sick patients, held the hand of many as they passed onto the better side, and have even delivered a lot of cute little ones into this world (which is, by the way, the most gratifying experience). My life is dedicated to sports: I played soccer for my high school, swam for my college team, and really got into rock climbing and sea kayaking during medical school and residency. I play the piano and guitar (female singer: now hiring!), speak 2 languages (4 if you count gibberish and sarcasm as languages), and have so far been lucky enough to visit 30 of our planet's beautiful countries.
But most importantly, none of these things would've been possible without the support of all my family and good friends. Speaking of friendship, I certainly would love to learn more about you. Manhattan is a great place to spend time and get to know someone. And I think that if there is a chance we could get together, we should strive to indulge in this city's endless offerings. I look forward to meeting you soon.
