How I fell in love with radiology: During medical school, Dr. Jud Gurney persuaded me that the best way to pursue my desire to be a medical detective was through noninvasive imaging and the field of radiology.

Three things you don't know about me:

  • I love taking my two kids fishing;
  • my wife and I like traveling to new places; and
  • living in Michigan for five years served to make me a bigger Nebraska fan than ever.
