My beautiful wife of 38 years, Kathleen, and I are now living by Wrightsville Beach in Wilmington, North Carolina, near where we honeymooned. We have three wonderful children who have all finished graduate school and are trying to change the world! We have two awesome grandchildren, Sophia and Theo. I trained in pediatrics at University of Maryland and anesthesia and critical care at Harvard. I have been practicing anesthesia and pediatric critical care medicine since 1988 and am currently on the faculty at University of North Carolina. I was recently elected to Chief of Staff at New Hanover Regional Medical Center in Wilmington. As we start to think about retirement, we plan to split our time between Wilmington, Nashville, and southern Spain.
