Dr. Alo is a cardiologist that grew up in Toledo, Ohio attending St. John’s Jesuit High School and receiving an Economics degree from the University of Toledo. He’d later move to Chicago to complete all of his medical training.
This blog began in medical school as a way to share all the craziness of medical school and medical training in Chicago. All kinds of crazy things can happen and it was hard to share stories with family and repeating the same stories over and over again. The blog made it easier for family back in Toledo to keep up with me.
I have always been a writer. My writing career began when I was only 10-12 years old self publishing newsletter and magazines printed on laser printers and distributed by hand or by mail. When the internet started, I moved most of my magazines to the internet quickly. My most popular magazines was the Paintball Times and was one of the most popular online digital destinations raking in 5-10 million monthly visitors back in 1993. It was one of only two websites on paintball at the time.
While in college at the University of Toledo, I’d be an opinion columnist for The Collegian in a weekly column called “Question This” raising pertinent issues on campus.
I would later run for Student Body President in a historic election with the second largest voter turn out in school history.
In 2005, I started Football Times which was a website for coaches to share playbooks, plays, philosophies, and discuss various aspects about football health and nutrition. I was a huge football fan and played football in high school, played in recreational tackle leagues, and played in flag football leagues. It’s by far the sport that I enjoy playing the most and the most intellectually challenging!
Now I mainly write about technology, sports, and life lessons. You can’t really write about patients anymore due to privacy laws, but you can comment generally on medicine.
I love technology and writing reviews. I spend a considerable amount of time researching gadgets before finally getting one. I like to share my reviews so others can benefit.
I am a huge NFL and football fan, I spend a considerable amount of time writing about football, the Denver Broncos, and fantasy football.
As a new homeowner, I have also been writing about various homeowner tips and tricks. Reviews of home maintenance equipment, vehicles, grass, upgrades, and repairs.
Now that I have kids in sports and have been coaching them, I have written about sports extensively. Coaching tips for parents and how to put kids into the best position to succeed without overwhelming them and causing them to hate the sport. A very delicate balance!
I’m the type of person that likes to research and read about everything. If I have to coach 5 year olds in soccer, I will read a ton of books and websites on coaching kids. I am a perfectionist like that. I want to give them the best opportunity. I also believe sports at that age should be fun and don’t want to using coaching techniques to ruin their enjoyment.
My philosophy when it comes to working with people and living life is to treat everyone the same and to treat everyone the way you like to be treated. I love life and try to enjoy every minute of it. I try to live with no regrets, everything that happened previously has helped shape me into who I am today.
