I really enjoy just about any outdoor activity including hiking, climbing, backpacking, camping, running, biking, swimming, disc golfing, slacklining and others. I play a lot of tennis and spend a lot of time on cross country skis and on a snowboard. I am married to an awesome woman and we have two teenage boys and I have been fortunate to watch them succeed at their pursuits.
I think ultrasound is amazing – it provides better care to the patient and better professional satisfaction to me.
