A typical day in my life includes…

waking up early—like 5:30— to check emails and then hop in the shower. Three days out of five I’ll have a 7am conference call, and then I get to the office by 8am. In between seeing patients I’m answering emails, making calls and researching new techniques that will help patients.

I was born…

to help people. I love it when I can see that I am helping patients improve how they feel and live.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

is the hiking. Since moving here I have made it a goal to hike at least twice a week, except for when it is super hot in the middle of the summer. I also love all the sports—my son and I try to get to at least a few games each year.

I’m listening to…

anything on BPM. I love how the beats get me excited for my day.

My family…

is why I do what I do. I love them and want to do everything I can to support them.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Rod Stewart. I always loved his music, and would love to talk to him about how he came up with his songs.

One thing I cannot live without…

is my phone.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a stock broker. The excitement of Wall Street in the 1980’s was contagious. As I grew up, I realized that I wanted to have a more personal impact on people and so headed towards medicine.

I’m inspired by…

so many different things and people. I get inspired by the advances I see in technology, and in different applications. I’m inspired by how quickly my kids learn and grow. I’m inspired by the people I work with and how dedicated they are to what they do.

The one person who motivates me is…

honestly, me. I have always had a certain drive. I’m not sure where it came from, but I’ve always had goals and I never stop working towards them.

The perfect day would be…

waking up and going for a sunrise hike, meeting my friends for coffee afterwards, and then heading to a football game with my kids. Then either dinner with my wife out, or just watching Netflix on the couch with her after dropping the kids off with their grandparents.

My first job was…

cutting grass at the local country club and delivering golf clubs when they were dropped off at the curb.

My favorite escape…

different shows on Netflix.

My life…

is a work in progress. I have a personality where I am always taking on new challenges and creating things. Creation and innovation aren’t easy, but they are my passion.

I’m currently working on…

a really cool robotics project.

Always…

brush your teeth.

Never…

stop trying. Failures are just part of the process.

Favorite Quote…

“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new” – Albert Einstein.

Biggest Dream…

to see my kids grow up happy and healthy.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

I don’t really have one…maybe when my kids take my phone charger for their devices and I can’t find it.
