I received a BA degree from Cornell University while contemplating a career in architecture. Dentistry piqued my interest and I was granted a D.M.D. degree from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine in 1981. To enhance my skills and serve my country, I joined The U.S. Navy Dental Corps. and was stationed at the marine base in El Toro, CA.
I have been married for twenty-two years to my wife Michele and have two teenage children Michael and Madison.
I enjoy riding my bicycle, playing golf and tennis and walking my dog Pugsly.
