“I am a current surgical resident living in Philadelphia with a penchant for exploring the city I live in, connecting with others over coffee and books, and embracing a simplified lifestyle. I started my blog to accomplish those goals and to create an outlet through which I could form connections with others outside of my profession. As a blogger and amateur photographer, I strive to find the beauty within this city that others may miss, all while searching for the best cups of coffee around.”
