About Me

Homestake Peak Colorado

Welcome to My Homepage!

     Hello, my name is Nathan Patel, I was born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Shortly after I was born I moved to Stanford, California and after six years in Stanford we moved back to Ann Arbor, and that is where I completed all my schooling.

     I started off at Wines Elementary School then moved on to Forsythe Middle School, and finally finished grade school at Pioneer High School where I played varsity Lacrosse. I finished my undergraduate studies at the University of Michigan majoring in computer science where I graduated with honors in Decemeber of 2013. My next adventure in academics was graduate school at the University of Michigan where I studied medicine and graduated in 2018 with a Doctorate of Medicine. I am currently a resident in General Surgery at Wake Forest Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

     Throughout grade school I discovered my passion for the outdoors. I enjoy everything to do with the outdoors, rock climbing, backpacking, mountaineering, whitewater kayaking, rafting, mountain biking, and sailing. I have been doing all of these activities since I was eleven and now I have the experiences (not to be confused with knowledge or expertise :P) to pass on these great opportunities that I had when I was young to other people!

     I am also an avid computer programmer, I started with Python and I have explored almost every port from python to other languages. Microsoft did a really good job with .NET so I am a big fan of IronPython. I am also quite adept at C++, LabView, C#  (So cool because their are ports through mono to other operating systems), HTML, PHP, CSS, MATLAB Image Processing, Ruby on Rails, Chrome Extensions, and tidbits of Java.

     Overall, life is good and I sincerely hope/wish/believe/dream that we can all Coexist peacefully in this world. And also check out some picutres of some of my finest adventures: PICS.
