What is the one thing most people don't know about you?
I coached a high school wrestling team for three years and was very close to choosing a much different career path than my current one.
Describe your family life and what it means to you.
I have 3 brothers, 3 sisters, and 13 nieces and nephews, which makes holidays a ton of fun. My wife is in anesthesia, specializing in chronic pain management. We have 4 amazing children - 3 daughters and a son. they help keep us focused on the important things in life.
When you are not working a rigorous schedule in the ED, what do you do in your free time?
I tend to try a bunch of different hobbies. My most current hobby is woodworking. I recently built an Ottoman and a desk for my daughters. A tea box is next on my projects list.
