What I do for fun:
- Make my new two month old smile and laugh!
- Ride motorcycles (not the Harley type – I prefer the elegance of speedy missile-like European manufactured machines that go so fast they make your eyes water).
- Huge fan of video games (first person shooter games) and just built a custom PC. I’m pretty sure that’s got a lot to do with my passion for ultrasound.
- My greatest love is traveling to the developing world (namely Latin America) without a plan and driving off in search of adventure, good company and hidden surf spots.
Why I joined AEUS: I joined AEUS because I wanted to be part of a community of docs who were all about what I love doing (gratuitous bedside ultrasound). I knew it would be the right place to find the support from experienced people that I need to launch a career in emergency ultrasound research.
