My favorite hobby and passion is music (both of my parents were professional musicians and music educators). I play piano, guitar, clarinet and saxophone and enjoy writing and arranging music. While in Dental School I co-founded a band which we named IRM which stands for intermediary restorative material (that white, temporary filling material that smells like cloves) because we knew we were only a temporary band. We performed at many events at the dental school and elsewhere.
