    During my free time I like to cook with my wife, hike, cycle while watching reruns of The Office, or go to record stores to add to my collection.
    I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and am a big Cubs and Bears fan. I played football in college and was an EMT prior to attending medical school.
    Why they chose SIU

    I chose SIU because of the excellent operative experience offered by the program and the clear camaraderie among the residents and faculty. With more attendings than residents you get to be involved in the operating room early and often. Additionally, working with primarily community based surgeons enables me to train in a similar setting I envision myself practicing in.
