Welcome to my website. I've
thrown a few things of interest here. This isn't a
professional website by any means. I am a physician (Surgeon
and Acupuncturist) in Modesto, California, and to balance my life, I
enjoy my life-long hobby of playing violin and piano.
Playing music for me balances the artistry of Botox injections,
filler injections, acupuncture needling, hernia surgeries,
gallbladder operations, and breast cancer operations. I work
at Surgical Artistry in Modesto, California with my wife Dr. Tammy,
I was pleasantly surprised to see this on YouTube. I actually didn't know it was recorded. I'm
grateful I had a chance to really hear my violin against an
orchestra. This is a relatively new violin for me, although
I've had it for about 10 years. It is a violin by Francois
Louis Pique, France - Late 1700's.

Brown University wanted me to answer some questions about my life and why I
chose their school/medical program. I'm in the process of re-recording this so I don't look so
tired. I recorded the above/below video at 4AM in the morning (they
are the same video). Here's
the youtube version of it.
