All through school, was interested in both medicine and art.

Was working as an orderly when he got in a terrible car accident.

A professor recommended that he combine his love of science and art and become a conservator.
Now hailed as one of the best, if not the best, conservators in the U.S.
Has treated the Liberty Bell, the inkwell from signing of the Declaration of Independence.
After his near-death experience, says the most important thing is spending your time well, doing what makes you happy.
