What inspired you to get into medicine?
I went into medicine because I liked to help people, and I love the idea of helping people achieve their best self. My father was an engineer, and my mother was a pharmacist. So both talents came naturally. Operating in surgery is much like engineering, but in medicine, you get the wonderful interactions with people and their families, and I enjoy that very much.

What do you like to do in your downtime?
I like to run, bike and swim. I finished the Wisconsin Iron Man race in 2014, which is a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride and a 26.2-mile run. It required many days of commitment and training, all of which helps keep me healthy. I also enjoy the outdoors: canoeing, kayaking, hunting and camping. My wife and I have two grandchildren we visit and enjoy as well.

What is one interesting, unique or fun thing that most people may not know about you?
I am a military veteran, having proudly served in the U.S. Air Force. I was an electrical engineer before I went to medical school. I am also an Iron Man participant!
