Caleb Sunderland

ER Nurse

An ER nurse in the California foothills, Caleb loves offsetting the fast pace and excitement of work with the calm and quiet countryside. He enjoys travel, photography, reading...and occasionally writing. While he finds the science of medical care amazing, he also finds the lives of his patients equally fascinating. The natural bent toward efficiency found in the ED has saved him from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and he may use this advantage to finish his book one being a thousand page Sci-fi novel or a treatise on some random and obscure topic.
