“My white coat is just one aspect of who I am. I’m proud of being a doctor, but I’m much more proud of being a husband to my extremely supportive wife, and of being a father to my sweet little 4-year-old daughter. My favorite thing to do is to spend time with them. Between career demands and family I do not have an abundance of time, but I make it a priority to keep up with activities I enjoy. For instance, I am a Jiu-Jitsu black belt, and have been training since I was 15. It’s a huge part of who I am, it’s something that helps me protect my family and myself, and also keeps me in shape. Music is another great interest that I use to decompress. I have been playing guitar for many years, and am actually attempting to learn piano right now so I can dig deeper into music theory. It’s my goal to try to live as a “Renaissance Man”. I want to attain expertise in a wide variety of areas and, more importantly, I never want to stop learning.
#withoutthewhitecoat I am a father, husband, black belt, musician, and more.”
