 “I am married with a son and miniature schnauzer. In our spare time my family and I enjoy staying active and taking long walks. I do a lot of reading and when not keeping up with medical literature, I like to immerse myself in historical literature. Vacations are mainly spent with our respective families but we do have an adventurous spirit and have been fortunate to travel through Europe, America and Africa.

My wife, who is an ICU nurse, and I thoroughly enjoy our work and are dedicated to our patients and professions. We are keenly aware of the privilege it is to care for people from all walks of life.”
