I share my birthplace with Frank Sinatra and the game of baseball: Hoboken, New Jersey. I completed my undergraduate degree at Boston College (pre-Flutie) and then went on to graduate from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. I moved to Maine for my residency at Maine Medical Center and have been a pediatrician in private practice for 24 years. I am an avid sports fan and particularly enjoy baseball. I hope that the New England area will not hold my loyalty to the Yankees against me (yeah, right). My greatest interest is the adventure of parenthood, and trying to keep pace with the interests of my children: from poetry to fashion design, to alpine skiing, to ukulele, to circus performance and beyond. I also enjoy bird watching from my 10th floor window at the Marginal Way InterMed office.
