I never quite know how to describe myself in profiles, always feels a bit awkward to me but I really enjoy the honest, supportive, kind, creative vibe of this community so I'll try... I guess one could say I am sort of a professional student ;) of medicine (been working toward MD), chemistry (got a PhD in Organic Chemistry) and Life! I love the outdoors and backpacking trips to Yosemite's back-country are my favorite times. I also love travel, music, color and art of all varieties. I'm not an artist but I like to create sometimes and I have fun!
