“Success is when at the end of one’s life one can say the world is a better place for one having been there.” I try to live my life in accordance with this quote. My friends and family would describe me as an easy-going person who is fun-to-be-with, who is also considerate, friendly, good-natured, and personable. I like to look at situations with a glass half full, and pride myself on being dependable.
I grew up in Pittsburgh (so yes, I’m a Steelers fan!) then spent 8 years in NYC before moving out to Seattle for residency. When I'm not at work I can generally be found swimming, skiing, hiking in the mountains, or doing some other outdoor activity. I also really enjoy traveling and recently spent time in several Asian and African countries. While I love being active, I also enjoy cooking dinner and relaxing with a good movie or an addictive TV show.
