If I weren’t a doctor I would be: Better rested and possessed of a more socially acceptable sense of humor

Personal Goals: 

  • Develop my boxing skills and improve my sparring
  • Run a full marathon instead of a half
  • Get the band back together (I play bass)
  • Continue giving my best every day toward becoming the kind of physician I aspire to be

Craziest / Best / Worst Job: I was a video game designer/writer for five years. I actually don’t play many games unless they involve spelling, but I loved the unparalleled creativity of the games business.

Interesting fact: I’ve been in close quarters with anthrax, VX, and enough sarin gas to kill 800 people. Ask me about it sometime!
