My family and I have lived in Minneapolis since completing my medical training in my native California. My lovely wife and I are blessed with two sons and two daughters who keep us plenty busy. I enjoy spending family time at our cabin, learning spoken Chinese, and keeping up with technology. For the record – I do not play golf.
Imagination was given to man to compensate him for what he is not; a sense of humor to console him for what he is. – Francis Bacon
