I was born in a Kaiser Permanente Hospital in Oakland, California. As a young lad in Southern California I loved boy scouts, sports, and science. I thought about becoming a forest ranger. I came to my senses in college and worked to attend medical school at University California, San Francisco. Not able to afford school, I signed up with the US Navy to pay tuition. That was the beginning of a 25 year career that allowed me to learn to fly military aircraft. Following five years with the US Marine airwing I became a urologist and retired from the Navy as Captain. Of course, I wanted to return to my roots - Kaiser Permanente. I love working for Kaiser Permanente.
