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!
I just got back from a trip to Botswana and Zimbabwe to see their animals on safari. I’m on the Board of the wonderful Maryland zoo and this trip really gave me a perspective on how important zoos are for those animals that have been challenged for survival.
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.
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.
As an entrepreneur, I live by “Often wrong, but never in doubt.”
