I was born and raised in Louisiana, so I naturally love spicy food, crawfish and jazz. I attended Tulane University, where I obtained a degree in computer science. After college, I was a software engineer for several years during the tech boom, but quickly developed a distaste for cubicles and limited person-to-person interaction. As a child, I always loved medicine, so I started taking night classes in anatomy/physiology. I worked my way to attending medical school at Louisiana State University. I was drawn to the field of otolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat surgery) due to the wide variety of patients, pathology and technical skill required of the field.

Cómo vivo bien
Being a new parent, the lion's share of my personal time is spent with my growing family. When I am not devoting all of my free time to my father role, I enjoy technology of all types: science fiction, video games and cooking. My favorite sci-fi book is, "Dune," and my favorite sci-fi television series is a tie between Stargate SG1 and Battlestar Galatica. My favorite chef is Jacques Pepin, with chicken ballottine being my favorite dish. I will conclude with a quote from Leonard Nimoy (Spock), "Live long and prosper!"
