Bio

I am a child of a long line of firefighters, first to go to college in my generation, third generation Italian American. Though i was destined to be a pediatrician until I experienced surgery in medical school. I was hooked on pediatric urology after spending time as a medical student with some of the founding fathers of pediatric urology and reconstructive urology. love to fish with my children and cook for my beautiful retina-neuro-ophthalmologist wife. We live in paradise in coastal North Carolina.
