Why did you decide to live in Albuquerque?
I moved here to follow a job opportunity in emergency medicine but after living here for a few years I realized how uniquely beautiful New Mexico is and decided to make it my home.  I love the outdoors and the opportunities Albuquerque provides to get outside at any time of the year.  But, it’s the people that truly make Albuquerque a great place to live, and the chili isn’t bad either.
