I’ve been really into golf my entire life.  Once the snow starts falling, I switch gears to skiing.  Fishing, sports and my dog take up the rest of my free time.  Music is a huge part of my life.  I used to be a drummer in an awesome band, but I had to give up the rock star life to become a doctor.  Huge fan of all Detroit sports.  The Lions will win the Super Bowl before I graduate.  You heard it here first.

My hobbies and interests include ingesting too much coffee and losing track of time on wikipedia. In my past life when free time was still a thing I was big into engine building and automotive repair/restoration. I like to explore new sports and hobbies whenever I can. I am an avid skier, and had a blast as a Ski Patroller back in Virginia. I like to read pretty much anything.  My life’s motto is “If it isn’t interesting, you don’t know enough about it.”

Not sure what life ‘Outside the Department’ means, but in my earlier life: rafting, skiing, nature, camping, backpacking, hiking and hanging out with my 160lb Leonberger
