What made you decide to become a veterinarian?
In my younger years I made a living pet sitting the neighborhood pets. I knew then I was destined to work with animals.

When I’m not at work, you might find me …
You won’t, I’ll probably be hiking on a trial in the middle of nowhere.

Aside from working with animals, what are you most passionate about?
My wife (because she is watching me fill out this form.

What is number 1 on your bucket list?
To learn to speak Polish.

How long have you worked at Atlantic Veterinary Hospital?
Since January 2021

In your opinion, what animals are the most misunderstood?
The Duck Billed Platypus. It’s a cross between a beaver and a Mallard. I don’t get it. What’s the plural of a platypus anyway? Is it platypuses? Platypi? Do they travel in herds, packs, gaggles or flocks? I can’t rest until I know the answers to these questions.

What isĀ  your favorite holiday?
My wife’s birthday (yup, she is still standing here)
