Your adventure starts...where? A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…but if we’re not talking about Star Wars and the Forest Moon of Endor then my adventure would have to start in the Shire. Not the real Shire of course but the one on the North Island of New Zealand where The Lord of the Rings was filmed. Many of our doctors practice medicine in this majestic area and I’d like to visit there, too.
A great moment for you: As a sports fan, it would have to be the joy of watching the New York Yankees and Manchester United play in the same day while visiting New York City. But the greatest moment of my life by far is the moment I became a father.
Your passions outside of work: I enjoy spending time with my family, following our local professional soccer team Real Salt Lake and collecting sports & movie memorabilia (along with other treasures). I also love playing golf, pickle ball, soccer, volleyball, croquet and tennis. Some more guilty pleasures include watching Masterpiece Mystery on PBS and going to see the latest blockbuster film with my wife.
A quote that inspires you: “You're never as good as everyone tells you when you win, and you're never as bad as they say when you lose.” – Lou Holtz, former University of Notre Dame Football Coach
Why I live in Utah: The scenery! Angels Landing in Zion National Park is the best hike I have ever been on. I also love the views at Bryce Canyon. And there are so many fun things to do here: camping, fishing, hiking, cycling and skiing. I love to travel but Utah will always be home.
Best place I’ve lived: Aside from the Salt Lake City area, it would have to be Michigan. I miss the endless sea of green trees and the fireflies at dusk.
First job: From sixth to ninth grade I had an after-school paper route. And I spent all my earnings on sports trading cards.
