Spending time with my family, cooking, biking, making music, enjoying good food and brews

Why did you choose the U of M for your residency?

The MPLS-STP metro is a great place to live and I really enjoy the vibes and outdoor spaces. The program attracted me because it offers excellent real-world preparation as well as world-class academic training.

Where are you from?

I grew up in Woodbury, a suburb of St. Paul.

Where did you do undergrad and med school?

Undergrad: Emory University

Medical school: University of Minnesota

What do you do when you're not practicing medicine?

Biking, spending time outside, traveling, and trying new restaurants.

Why did you choose the U of M for your residency?

I knew the program as a medical student and I really liked everyone in the department. It's a very kind place where people genuinely want you to succeed. The case exposure in both DR and IR is excellent and there is no area of radiology that we are not well trained in by the time we finish residency. We have exposure to the entirety of IR (including PAD) which is not common among IR training programs across the country.

Where do you see yourself in the near future?

My wife and I are moving to Boston after residency.
