Having lived in four corners of the United States for various jobs and schooling, Tom finally decided to return to Portland, to the rains, the green parks, Powell's and the parents. Born in Beijing, he left China when he was twelve, but still retains a local accent in his Mandarin. When not buried in textbooks, he likes to….read (yeah, his parents think he needs more hobbies too!). Other activities that make him happy include cooking and eating food, traveling, hanging out with friends and more. He is open-minded about career choices after residency, and is currently thinking about rheumatology, critical care or outpatient medicine.
