Biography Information
I grew up in the desert of Arizona and went to college in the beautiful mountains of Utah prior to beginning my trek east--first to the plains of Texas for medical school and now to the lovely green of Mississippi. I have also lived abroad in Malaysia and loved my time there. I still practice my language skills and have previously worked as a Malay translator, though opportunities to speak are admittedly rare in the States. With a wife and kids, I definitely value the time I am free to be with them. We love spending time outdoors on a nice hike or walk and indoors playing board games, doing jigsaw puzzles, and eating good food.
