About

The doctor said I would live in a nursing home, confined to a wheelchair, crippled by pain.

Instead,  I am a 2019 D.M.D. candidate at Harvard School of Dental Medicine and aspiring pediatric dentist, spreading pain-free smiles, writing through my nights, and, once again, walking through my days.

  1. I’m not dead yet!
    Twice I’ve been told to get my affairs in order and yet I work out, walk miles and have a great life! All it takes to appreciate living is to be told you won’t be… living!

    Love the pix of the Charles and my home town!
