As a doctor, How did you cultivate an interest in publishing?

I’ve been an investor in PressBox for a number of years and see publishing as a way to give back to the community.

If you had not chosen medicine or publishing as a profession, what profession would you choose and why?

I would have been a 5 foot 11 inch Jewish NBA center!

Recent vacation:

When I want to relax, I … :

I love working, and I feel stressed if I’m not working.  I do also have an extensive vegetable garden.

Favorite movie:  

My favorite movie of all time is “Field of Dreams.” The last scene, where he plays catch with his father, brings me to the edge of tears every time.

Favorite quotation:
