When did you know that you wanted to be a plastic surgeon?
My interest and gifting in plastic surgery was developing before I was even aware of it. During childhood, I enjoyed working on things which required symmetry and precision, such as building models, taking things apart and repairing them; hands on activities. Later, during medical school, I found that I was drawn to the surgical specialties, and when, during my senior year of medical school I had the good fortune to train under the renowned Luis O. Vasconez in plastic surgery, and fell in love with it. This desire was confirmed during my general surgery training at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, TX., during which I took the opportunity to learn from the excellent plastic surgeons of The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.
What is your favorite thing to do when you aren’t working?
When not working, my favorite thing to do is spending time with my wife and 4 sons, and sitting in front of a fireplace reading. Also, I enjoy chopping the firewood!
If you could have any other job in the world, what would it be and why?
If I could have any other job in the world, I would be a Formula 1 racecar driver! Driving itself would be very exhilarating, but I truly delight in problem solving challenges and would enjoy the teamwork and collaboration to constantly improve the performance of both man and machine. Go Infiniti Red Bull Racing!
Do you have a secret skill? What is it?
I actually have 2 secret skills, both of which were acquired through Auburn University. I was a college wrestler, and also I am a board certified veterinarian.
Who is your role model and why?
I can’t name just one role model, but I am grateful for my teacher, Dr. Luis O. Vasconez, who was committed to excellence, was a great motivator, and valued all people very well.
If you could give one piece of advice to your followers, what would it be?
“Man looks at the outward appearance, but God looks at the heart.” To achieve true joy and greatest impact in this life, it is important to seek our best in both areas.
