What I love most about being a cardiologist is being able to establish long-term relationships with my patients, helping them improve their heart health and enhancing their overall quality of life. I find it extremely gratifying to help patients feel better and decrease their risk of future heart problems. Outside of work, I enjoy wood working and making furniture. While I admit I am not very skilled, I am getting better. To relieve stress, I like running and completed my first marathon in 2010. I love traveling with my wife and children to different parts of the country (or abroad), seeing new places and learning about different cultures or parts of history. I am also an avid fan of the Minnesota Vikings, I grew up in Minnesota, and the Carolina Hurricanes.
