Advice to myself and to my friends and colleagues: Visionary people embrace challenge by inventing opportunities and pursuing ideas. Their success is achieved not by meeting requirements or emphasizing credentials, but by giving others the ability to appreciate, use and adapt the things they love most. Think big, then go a lot bigger, and find clever ways to make it happen. People will follow and support you when they can see, understand, and believe in what you are doing. Setup a safety net, and then jump!

I am interested in collaborations of many kinds and with people of a wide variety of different experiences and skill-sets. I'm especially focused on academic collaboration. I am also usually looking for students to help with research projects. I am also interested in industry collaborations related to digital stethoscopes.
