Let's see, what can I tell you about myself. I'm a primary care doc by training, a psychiatrist by inclination, and I do research in both. Dr. Dredd was a nickname given to me during medical school. I'm not sure if it was meant to be complimentary, but I use it with pride anyway!
If it's not already obvious, I've liked the doctor characters on the sci-fi shows, from Leonard McCoy in the first Star Trek to Julian Bashir in DS9 to Janet Frasier in SG-1. And last but definitely not least, Carson Beckett. My latest passion is writing Stargate Atlantis fanfic. Carson is usually, if not always, the focus of my stories.
I used to live in Pittsburgh, but have moved to greener pastures in Rochester, NY. (Greener pastures? It's too COLD for that up here!) :-)
