How has the AAOS helped you throughout your career?
AAOS has been like a compass and lighthouse for my orthopaedic journey. Also, it’s a great platform to make new connections, keep in touch with old friends and stay up to date.

As an Associate Orthopaedic Member, which AAOS resources do you use most and why?
Using AAOS databases and access for up-to-date orthopaedic information coming directly from the source has been very valuable to me.

What’s the best advice you were ever given? Who was it from?
“Primum Non Nocere” …from some old doctor.

What’s your go-to productivity trick?
Be flexible, never say “no” without trying it and keep challenging it.

What’s one thing you’re currently trying to make a habit?
Timely change my car oil and do tire rotations. I need an app for that!

What hobbies do you enjoy in your spare time?
Fixing and refurbishing random stuff, playing drums, designing, taking photos and making events videos.

Always wanted to be a pop singer but have no voice.
