Why I chose this specialty: I chose plastic and reconstructive surgery for the variety. We treat patients from 2 days old to more than 100 years old and operate from head to toe. During residency, it was not uncommon to operate on one-year-old for a cleft lip, a 20-year-old for facial trauma, 40-year-old for breast cancer reconstruction, a 50-year-old for carpal tunnel syndrome, a 60-year-old for a cosmetic facelift and an 80-year-old for skin cancer all in the span of a few days. It also allows me to use my hands, not only to heal, but also in an artistic manner. 

Hobbies and interests: I love being outdoors — hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, boating (wake-boarding, skiing, skurfing and tubing), scuba, smoking meat and gardening. My wife and I love trying new restaurants. 

Volunteer activities: Operation Smile. My first trip was to India to treat a cleft lip and palate.

Latest accomplishment: Finishing the breast and microsurgery fellowship at UTSW. I spent a year focusing on mainly autologous breast reconstruction.

How I stay physically fit: Mainly by chasing my two very active kids. but I also try to get to the gym as much as possible.
