Thank-you for taking a minute to stop by my corner of the internet! I began this anecdotal adventure as a way to keep up with friends and family and perhaps make new friends during a new chapter of my life. My story began on the island of Sicily, where I was born. However, I call myself a Texan (as per the mantra, I wasn’t born there, but I got there as fast as I could). I owe Texas for a great public education, college education at UT-Dallas and medical education at Texas A&M. The next chapter of my life, will be in Minneapolis, Minnesota. There, I will embark on my residency! The culture and climate change, will provide much for me to reflect on and laugh over. As you sit back and enjoy my humbling and entertaining “wow” moments, take a minute to share your own!
