How has the AAOS helped you throughout your career?
AAOS has been a resource for educational materials and professional events. The annual academy meetings are an amazing networking opportunity. Submitting and presenting research at the meeting in San Diego was a great opportunity as a resident. 

As a Fellowship Member, which AAOS resources do you use most and why?
JAAOS Review Articles are one of my favorite online resources. My first step in preparing for any case is reading a review article. It's a great way to refresh your memory and set a foundation for patient management and preop planning. I often refer to articles cited in those texts to dig deeper into a topic. ResStudy is another invaluable resource which I have used over the past 5 years to prepare for the in-service exam. 

What’s your go-to productivity trick?
Getting an early start. We are already accustomed to getting up early and hitting the ground running with rounds/cases. You'd be surprised what that same energy applied to sitting down at a desk with the goal of studying/research can accomplish. 

What’s one thing you’re currently trying to make a habit?
Teaching someone something every day. As residency is coming close to an end, I want to share as much as I can before moving on to fellowship. 

What hobbies do you enjoy in your spare time?
Finding the balance between exercise and trying as many restaurants in NYC as possible. 

Tell us a fun fact about yourself that not many people know?
I learned how to snowboard over a winter vacation in medical school. It was actually only the second time I had ever seen snow. Snowboarding has been the highlight of every winter since then, taking me from Colorado to Switzerland.
