What has been your most memorable Annual Meeting and why?

My best AUA Annual Meeting was 2003. I had just moved to Minneapolis and was presenting some of our research in a poster session. A distinguished man, with a conference bag slung over his shoulder, sauntered over and said, "You're doing good stuff up there." It was Joe Segura. It was a heartfelt moment that lasts forever.

If you weren't a urologist what would you be?

A musician and a teacher.

What is one thing left on your Bucket List?

To watch my kids grow and succeed.

If you could have lunch with one person, living or dead, who would it be?

Robin Williams – a twinkling intellect.

What is one piece of advice you would give to a urology resident?

My mentor, Jim Roberts, told me, "Always be available to your patients." Those words are timeless.
