About Me


Meet good people, have fun, be inspired to travel...


Pragmatic, relaxed, quiet in my own way. At heart I am a nonconformist and enjoy being around people who are somehow on the fringes of society. Adventurous. If I start rambling to you about propofol or renal replacement therapy, kindly but firmly change the subject.


Cooking, speaking spanish, pretending I can dance, reading good books, being a medical geek, going to the gym, playing soccer, exploring new zealand, getting off the beaten track, tramping, taking photos, loitering in used book stores...
