In brief...

I currently reside in New Orleans, spending an alarming amount of my waking hours training in general and vascular surgery. The rest of my time is devoted to my wife Nathalie.

(And with God's grace, we survived Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.)

25 Random Things About Me in Random Order

1. I can't take a standardized exam to save my life. Hard to believe I made it through med school.
2. I hate people that smoke in hospital stairwells.
3. I listen to all types of music, but I prefer jazz.
4. Politics bore me.
5. I'm pathetically near-sighted. So is my wife. Our future kids are in trouble.
6. I'm a former coffee snob. Now I will drink whatever will keep me awake.
7. I have no favorite food. I love it all equally.
8. My favorite color is dark blue.
9. I love watching movies, but can't watch more than 2 in one day.
10. English is my second language.
11. I hate urban legends.

13. I learned to drive in a chocolate-brown '77 Buick station wagon.
14. Given the choice of chewing gum or smelling farts... I guess I'd chew gum, but I really wouldn't like it.
15. I've never been able to successfully cook fish.
16. I'm not a morning person, yet my work requires me to wake up by 5am most of the week.
17. I watch less than 2 hours of TV a week.
18. I think of myself as a better driver than the general population.

20. I have the hardest time throwing away an empty box.
21. My family is the most important part of my life.
22. I have a degree in bioengineering, mathematics, chemistry, and medicine. I'm a geek.
23. I like my liquor "neat".
24. I once dreamt that I died. When I woke up I felt as if I were given a second chance. I've changed my life after having that dream.
25. Thinking up 25 random things took a lot longer than I thought it would...
