I attended college at Stetson University where I met my wife, Becky, now of nearly 45 years. I then attended medical school at Vanderbilt University, and subsequently trained in plastic surgery at Emory University. We have three sons, two married and four grandchildren. I practiced plastic surgery in Knoxville for many years. Beginning in the early 90’s I volunteered with Interplast, an international humanitarian organization, which provides free reconstructive plastic surgery to the poor in developing countries (primarily cleft lip & palate, and burns). I left my practice in 1999 and became the full-time medical director of Interplast. I traveled a great deal as Interplast (now ReSurge International) has programs in Asia, Africa, South and Central America. I retired from that in 2007. I then took a part time consulting and teaching position at a Knoxville hospital instructing several local general surgeons in the surgical repair of complex wounds, retiring from that in 2011.
Becky and I have loved living in Knoxville. The climate seems ideal, not so hot in the summer, not too cold in the winter with beautiful long fall and spring seasons. Over the years my primary interests outside of medicine have been photography and hiking, primarily in the Great Smoky National Park. Becky was a teacher for some years and writes short fiction. We are now enjoying our retirement years, which especially includes our children and grandchildren.
