I have two big passions in my life: medicine and technology. Being a part of this team offered me the opportunity to learn something new everyday about the digital world we live in and also write about it. When it comes to my work I'm very focused and detail oriented and I like to get things done. When I'm not working I'm a different person: some say I'm a fun person (Thanks mom!) and outgoing. When I'm not out with friends, I like reading books, watching a movie or playing a video game. My biggest fear is public speaking and maybe this is why writing seems so full of possibilities to me.
