I'm the eldest of 3 kids, and I grew up primarily in Tennessee however circumnavigated a fair bit in the southeast. After attending more than 20 schools along the way, I wound up in Lake Charles, Louisiana where I attended high school. I fulfilled a woman in eighth grade who over the next few years became my girlfriend. With broad eyes we started dreaming and planning our life. In the summer between our junior and senior years I asked her to wed me and she said yes! We went through the senior year engaged and at the end of that year, 1978, we were married at a lovely conventional wedding event loaded with friends and family. After a heart-shaped honeymoon in the Pocono Mountains, it was off to the armed force.

I understood I wanted to be a doctor but needed a method to spend for my education. So, throughout the day I worked as a nuclear rocket mechanic and nights and weekends I went to college at the University of North Dakota. As exciting as that was the bigger and more amazing news was the birth of my very first kid. My son was born in 1980. Soon after this I received an "early out" from active service and transitioned to the active reserves so I could continue my education. When I transformed to a position in the reserves and was able to attend Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge full-time. I was on a scholarship program from the military and after finishing with my medical degree I entered the military as a general surgical treatment homeowner at Eisenhower Army Medical Center in Augusta Georgia. That was a great experience for me but absolutely nothing compared with the experience of finding out that my partner was carrying twins! My twin daughters were born in 1987. My first duty station as a robotic surgeon was at Fort McClellan in Anniston, Alabama. I had a remarkable time there for 3 years acting at times as the only surgeon for the entire post. That was in 1989 which was about the exact same time that the minimally invasive surgery movement was beginning with laparoscopy.
