Why did you go into pediatrics?
During my pediatrics rotation during medical school, I found that I really enjoyed the interactions I had with children. Most pediatric problems can be managed and are straight forward. My parents were both teachers so spending time educating parents on what to expect when it comes to normal growth and development comes naturally. I also enjoy helping families understand why diseases occur and how to prevent future issues.
Why do you like working with Bundoo?
Bundoo is an excellent platform for communicating educational topics which are important for parents, not with medical jargon, but in a simplified way. Bundoo values both the expert and the family and is always finding new ways to engage its audience.
What is your favorite thing to do with your children?
I enjoy experiencing new joys and excitement through the eyes of my daughter. She is starting to be more involved in activities such as ballet and soccer. Our family has taken several trips to Walt Disney World and we like to reminisce on prior trips and plan our next adventures.

What’s your favorite article or blog on Bundoo.com?
Paternity leave–for the love of the game? This was the first blog I wrote for Bundoo. I enjoy writing about current events or new research in the world of pediatrics while at the same time adding my own commentary or spin on things.
Who or what inspired you to do what you do?
I have always had an interest in science ever since I was a young boy. I watched as my paternal grandfather was cared for in a nursing home and I frequently visited him when I was in elementary school. Later, when I was in high school, I experienced my maternal grandfather succumbing to a heart attack after years of smoking. I felt as if I could make a difference in the lives of others in terms of wellness and prevention.
