How long have you been involved with O&P?

Eleven years now. I got involved after I lost my leg and a good friend who was a prosthetist said, You ought to think about doing this.

Do you have any pets?

I have a Siamese cat, Milo, and the four-legged love of my lifea wirehair dachshund named Schultz. You can see animated versions on my web site: www.sleeveart.net

What innovation in O&P do you feel would help you or your patients?

I have to say SleeveArt. It provides a means for individuals to feel differently about their amputation and their lifestyle.

What is your favorite TV show?

ER.

Any hobbies you pursue?

Im a drummer, and I play regularly. Music is a driving force in my life.

What advice would you give a new amputee or someone considering a career in O&P?

To the new amp: Most important be patient! Second Communicate with your practitioner!

To someone getting into the O&P field: We need many good new practitioners, and there is nothing more rewarding than being able to help someone regain control of their life.
