After graduating from college in pre-med, I elected not to continue on to medical school, but joined the US Navy to serve in the Vietnam War. During that time, I discovered my interests lay more in leadership than in science.

I believe combining the two perspectives of business and science in this field gave me a unique skill set that increased my value and satisfaction. My wife and I recently moved to Vermont, close to Dartmouth College in New Hampshire. I hope to increase my volunteer opportunities with the Dartmouth Institute, as well as find volunteer leadership service in the local hospitals. My work as an expert witness has drawn on my hospital operations background in countless ways.
