Keeping it simple, and true to my nature.

Family physician, married to Barbara, father of two, raised in family of seven competitive children, will describe how I have gradually learned to love and accept myself for who I am: disorganized, vulnerable, curious, open to new ideas and experiences, playful, artistic, lover of nature, and spiritual in an atheistic way.  I will never be a world-famous scientist like I thought my father wanted me to be, but am finally fairly content to be a good doctor, teacher, father, husband, and believer in “voluntary simplicity.”
