There are so many wonderful things I could say about Matt, but I will try to keep it short! Matt is a deeply intellectual, easy-going, analytical thinker who enjoys traveling, teaching, and spending time with our friends and family. He is constantly learning new things, whether that involves researching financial investments, scuba diving, or how a specific kind of jet engine works. He is kind and generous, which I see every day by how he treats me, how he cares for his patients, and how passionate he is in providing medical care in underserved places like Kenya and Ethiopia. Matt has many interests, which range from hobbies to major career choices. As a physician, he has a passion for medicine that extends beyond his own practice and both drives him to teach other doctors and to continue his work on medical missions around the world. Matt plays the guitar and appreciates a broad range of music. He also stays very physically active and enjoys golfing, biking, hiking, and working out. Matt loves his family immensely, playing for hours with our nephew, catching up with his brothers any chance he gets, and checking in on our families to make sure they are doing okay. He has always been patient, thoughtful, and loving to me and adores our sweet, spoiled dachshund, Macy, boundlessly. If his devotion to our nephew and Macy is any indication, I know Matt will be an amazing, invested, joyful, and excited parent to our child.
