What made you decide to become a physician?
Medicine is a second career for me, I actually worked about 7 years as an Aerospace Engineer. I began to have interest and thoughts of medicine and became a Volunteer in an EMS organization near Johnson Space Center (League City Texas) and caught the bug ending up in Emergency Medicine and EMS. 

What hobbies do you have or what do you like to do in your spare time?
Most of my hobbies focus around the kids activities, from skiing, to elk hunting in Colorado. Sports are big in our family.
I still enjoy aerospace activities.

If you could be a superhero who would it be?
Batman. He has the coolest toys.

I was born in Brownwood Texas. I consider Midland Texas my hometown (with a nod to Trauma and EMS, a town most famous for the "little girl falling in the well").

What was your first job?
I was the yard man for Memorial Christian Church in Midland Texas, started at $3.00 an hour. I was 13, and mostly got the job from the property manager because my Dad was one of the ministers at the church.
