About Me

Originally hailing from the Midwest, I have called Florida home for the past three years, including serving as a chief resident at a Jacksonville-area medical center, where I was a member of the ethics committee. I look forward to establishing my roots here.

My hobbies include cooking, traveling, singing, and reading and building my personal library.
