That’s a good question. Mondays and Wednesdays, but some Tuesdays, Thursdays, and

Recreational hockey and soccer. I have also represented Canada at the World Medical

What is a ‘fun fact’ about you that may surprise others?

My skills in “dad jokes” were well formed even before becoming a dad. I also am full of somewhat useful random trivia, that may entertain patients and learners alike, although I am mostly useless on trivia nights on specific topics, even if it’s on my favourite shows.
