Beginning with faith

BIMG_3145y profession I am an Obstetrician and Gynecologist with 25 years in the field and being amazed by gods creations has probably influenced my creativity.  To fulfill my inner self and fill me with happiness and satisfaction I like to create whether in the kitchen or in my arts and crafts, just as seeing my patients smile complete me.
