Where were you born and raised?

I was born in New York City, but grew up in Tenafly, NJ where my mother's family has lived since the 1890's.

What is your favorite part about being an ophthalmologist?

I love seeing familiar faces (and eyes) year after year. It is amazing to sometimes treat several generations of the same family and hear all of their stories.


Favorite thing to do outside of work?

I enjoy traveling, lots of reading- especially history (my wife is a librarian), and community activities and events.
