I live for the outdoors: camping, hiking, biking, longboarding, climbing, traveling. I spend my free time reading or hanging out with my girlfriend Jenny and my dog Oliver. I can kill an hour people watching, sketching a bird, getting the perfect perspective for a nature photograph, or just musing about the world and life. Few things exhilarate me like driving, whether on two wheels or four.

I love playing guitar, writing music, and jamming with friends. I try to travel as much as I can. I enjoy hiking, rock climbing, and weightlifting. I feel at home on the side of a mountain. I love reading recreationally, but I find it difficult to find the time. Instead, I try to spend my time with my friends and family.

I enjoy cooking bougie meals with my girlfriend Judi.  I love pretty much everything that has to do with food. I find myself getting lost in the moment… Wait where was I? I’m a huge fan of coffee, and coffee flavored craft beers. Traveling when I can afford it… Which is not as often as it should be. I love everything from skiing to just chilling and playing board games with friends.

Outside the Department

I have the worst (most amazing) sweet tooth and love to explore cities by eating everything I can get my hands on. Thus, I am engaged in an endless marathon between my health and Diabetes/Heart Disease. Overall, I tend to run and workout so I can eat. And this primarily defines my life.

I also love to travel. During the 4th year of medical school I spent my time in Swaziland, South Africa (Johannesburg and Cape Town), Thailand (Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Bangkok, Koh Samui, and Koh Phangan), DC, LA, Chicago x20, Columbus, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Denver, Tampa Bay, Miami, Dallas, Austin, Myrtle Beach, Detroit, and probably a few places I’m forgetting — a good amount for non-interview vacations. If you’re a 4th year med student, I suggest you take advantage of the year and do something you enjoy as well!
