About

Welcome.

I am a physician, a family medicine specialist with a focus on total health, diversity, and Washington, DC.

In 2007, I decided to relocate to our nation’s capital, from Seattle, Washington, to further my interests while continuing to live in the future. I believe in open leadership, sharing, and freedom from conflict of interest.

More detail, including my official bio, is on the Portfolio page.

It’s glass 3/4 full. Always and in all ways.

Comments always welcome. Feel free to connect via social media, links below.

Thanks for publishing my photos, @DailyDot, in Gender Identity: How Do the Experts Define Gender Identity?

Thanks for using my photos, Daily Dot (@DailyDot) in this piece providing helpful information about gender identity, a confusing concept to some, including physicians. I reviewed the piece and would recommend it to others.

I especially appreciate that they’ve chosen images depicting leadership and joy in this community. The image above is of community leader SaVanna Wanzer, from Capital TransPride 2016. I wrote about SaVanna in this piece: #WhatAHeroLooks like: 27 Years of DC Black Pride.

The other photo that DailyDot used is of JaeLee Waldschmidt, taken in 2015. JaeLee is also a community hero (as well as a nuclear submarine engineer) who I got to reunion with at this year’s 2017 Capital Pride celebration in Washington, DC (see: July 2017: What am I doing now? for that image)

LGBTQ Pride Month

Emojis for the future

I completed part of the special emoji project, to propose a transgender pride flag for the 2018 set, to the @Unicode consortium. Proposal submitted, waiting for the answer.

A small Kindle storm

I love my local library and all of the goodness it provides. I stagger my book holds pretty well so that the books I want to read are available in sequence. Pride month threw me off. Way off. Lots of held books became available, so, I had to semi-start over.

Now

Is there anything I should be doing that I’m not? Feel free to let me know in the comments.
