Jimmy Xu (shown below in his trademark "gangnam" style) lives in Chicago, IL with his dog, Paris. Originally hailing from NYC, he made big plans to move to the Bay Area for college, but ended up in Pittsburgh at Carnegie Mellon. He then did a two-year stint at Epic before going to the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. He started DocTalk Madison, a monthly meet up based out of 100state that brings together physicians and entrepreneurs.

After graduating from medical school this May, he followed his fiancee to Illinois for a Transitional Year program at Presence St. Joseph before heading down to Washington University in St. Louis for an Interventional Radiology residency. He created "To Zanzibar By Motor Car" because he loves art and the creativity in medicine. He is interested in watches, landscaping and the NBA. He is excited about molecular medicine, machine learning, and augmented reality.
