What made you decide to become a gastroenterologist?
I enjoyed learning about gastrointestinal structure and function, and chose gastroenterology even before I realized the excitement of endoscopy.
Who was the teacher you admired the most?
My gastroenterology program director, Charles E. Brady, III, M.D., taught me the importance of evidence-based medicine and critical analysis of the literature and my practice decisions.
What is your greatest regret?
I have none, professionally. I only hope others can enjoy medicine as much as I have.
How do you relax?
Fishing and racketball.
What is your favorite sport?
Hockey. It's a good thing I can’t skate.
What is your best place in the world?
Alaska - big fish!
What car do you drive?
Ford Explorer, tread-separated tires replaced.
What is your best electronic 'toy'?
NEC 750 Handheld. Light to carry and quick to turn on.
Why did you get in involved in GastroHep.com?
I'm interested in alternative methods of teaching and electronic publishing, having had experience with Physicians Online and the Online Journal of Digestive Health.
