Hobbies & Interests

I enjoy a number of outdoor activities such as mountain biking, snowboarding, rappelling, & diving (be it sky or SCUBA). I’m an art enthusiast in all its forms, but a terrible painter (through it hasn’t stopped me from trying). Since moving to TX I’ve taken up axe throwing. I travel as much as possible, from Afghanistan to Uganda (thus far). I jump at the opportunity to replace brakes, fix a dryer, or assemble the toughest of IKEA furniture. And every now and then I officiate a wedding.

Coolest Thing I've Done

The government said I can’t talk about it until records are unsealed, but it involves a horse, a helicopter, and explosives.

At JPS I found a combination of resident camaraderie, faculty leadership and patient pathology I had never seen before. The JPS EM experience is second to none. JPS EM residents log significant numbers of procedures while providing quality care to critically ill patients. And the culture of the JPS EM Program not only places great importance on quality patient care, but we also care about each other and that adds real value to our training as well as making for an exciting challenge every shift.
