Before co-founding BioWare back in 1995, Ray Muzyka trained as a medical doctor, working both as a family physician and in emergency rooms straight after graduation. While that experience is now two careers ago, it seems the skills never go away.
Muzyka, now an entrepreneur, travels a lot. He tweeted today about a flight:
Medical emergency while taxiing on plane to Edmonton from Calgary…I’m only MD on board? Yup. Turned back; paramedics; pt looking better w/ O2. Ok!
After retiring from BioWare in October last year, Muzyka has co-founded Threshold Impact. His new company is designed to “take on a brand new entrepreneurial challenge” – mentoring and investing in disruptive innovations in information technology, medical innovation and new media. The doctor now works with capable, passionate entrepreneurs to bring “excellent social returns” to the world – but it seems his quest to help people remains as hands-on as ever.
