Professional Summary

Personal Statement
At age fifteen I began accompanying my dad to work in his flooring installation business. The first time he let me lay tile by myself was only after he had taught me to carefully measure, mark and cut tile as his assistant. After high-school I worked my first job as a carpenter. My boss appreciated my eye for straight lines and tight-fitting joints and often gave me finish work. Two and a half years later, I felt the call to the priesthood and entered the seminary. Latin was one of my favorite subjects and I aspired to become adept at translating the ancient texts. My two years at the seminary gave me a new love for learning and a desire for more. Three years later, I graduated from technical college having double majored in Fluid Power and Manufacturing Engineering Technician. Despite the recession, I obtained a job as a maintenance technician for a freezer manufacturing plant where I worked the 12-hour night shift for nearly five years. The production line ran until midnight, and when it broke down there was immense pressure to repair it rapidly as the line-supervisor had to account for every unit below the daily quota. Being the mechanic, I was required to determine the problem and provide a solution and an estimated length of downtime for repairs. Many times, the challenge was beyond my skill set and I would call upon the electronic or tool and die technicians for help. My hunger for knowledge and desire for a career that had more intellectual demands spurred me to return to college. While working full-time I began taking one class at a time until I was able to purchase a second home that I moved into with my wife and two boys in order to rent out our first home. The rent money covered our mortgage payments for both homes allowing me to quit my job and become a full-time student. My interest in medicine grew during my time working part-time as a PCA in the ICU at the local hospital. Three years later I graduated with a biochemistry degree and was accepted to medical school.

Why I Chose Cincinnati
I enjoyed my interview day, the residents were welcoming and it was clear Dr. Warm was invested in resident education. My prelim year is the foundation for my radiology training and I believe that my UC medicine year will be a solid start. In addition to great training, it also made logistic sense as I will be completing my radiology residency at UC. Moving my family once was an obvious choice for my wife and I. We are also blessed to have family who live nearby in Kentucky. The whole package was a great fit and we look forward to making Cincinnati and the surrounding area our home for the next five years.
