Hello everyone! This is Dr. McFrugal, your friendly neighborhood physician and I'm new in town


It’s great to meet everyone here at Rockstar Finance!

I am a physician, anesthesiologist, interventional pain management specialist, and I live in Southern California. I am in my early mid-30s and I am married to my wonderful wife who is an accomplished attorney. So far, we have no kids. But that is about to change some time in March 2018 when our first baby is due to grace this beautiful world.

Obviously I have a strong interest in personal finance and financial freedom. But there are so many other things in life that I am passionate about. This includes: happiness; traveling; minimalism; travel hacking; health; fitness; sustainable and clean living; environmentalism; plant-based eating; frugality and other things that I do to optimize life to the fullest. These are some of the topics that I would typically blog about.

I have a thirst for knowledge and I am perpetual life long learner. A huge part of my decision to start blogging is to learn more from well-established bloggers and to share my experiences and knowledge with the blogging community and the world at large.

I plan to go to FinCon in Orlando this year! It would be great to meet everybody and I’m excited to interact with you all!
