Brief biography


I grew up in Escondido, California and attended San Pasqual High School. My parents, Chloe and Don, named me Michael Donald so that my initials would be "M.D." and they could call me "Doc."


I have been married since 2009. My wife, Isabel, is a family doctor. Our son, Maceo, was born in 2015.


I'm interested in performing and appreciating music. Here are eight albums that are important to me:


Frank Sinatra - Frank Sinatra Sings for Only the Lonely

Derek and the Dominoes - Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs

Parliament - Funkentelechy vs. The Placebo Syndrome

Queen - A Night at the Opera

Prince and the Revolution - Purple Rain
