Finding the intersection of your values and a patient's values will create the precise and intense moment of discovering the "right thing" to do.

I like to play blues music (albeit poorly), ride Harley Davidson motorcycles, and I am attempting to create the spiciest salsa on the planet, all while continuing my work on the next great American novel. Old movies, interesting reds, undiscovered destinations, novel conversation with strange and unusual people, struggling through language challenges, journeying to self-discovery, Hunter S. Thompson and Carlos Castenada, and stand-up paddleboarding. Above all these, I love my 5 blended family kids and Dyan, my partner in crime, the co-ringmaster of the three ring circus we call home.
