What has been your most memorable Annual Meeting and why?

That is easy, AUA2004. That was the year that I was awarded the Gold Cystoscope by the AUA. What a perfect week, being on the plenary, presenting papers and being part of my first awards dinner. It was such an honor, and I remember it like it was yesterday.

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

If I wasn't a urologist, then I would be a sports journalist or commentator. I love all sports, and I am a student of the game.

What is one thing left on your Bucket List?

Seeing my only daughter, Sarah, graduate college!

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

I would like to have lunch with John F. Kennedy. What stories he could tell; what a leader! How did he persevere during the Cuban Missile Crisis?

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

Enjoy the ride, focus on the experience. Nearly all of us look back fondly on our residency training.
