Professional Interests

I enjoy medical education and in the future I would really like to be known as an attending who is approachable and teaches well, and maybe be involved in program leadership. Right now I'm thinking about specializing in chest or MSK, but that could obviously change.


Film photography, hiking, watching Manchester United soccer, reading, traveling, working out.

My Favorite Things to Do in the Denver Area

I grew up in Denver, so I really enjoy skiing. I also love taking advantage of all the great parks in the city. If you have time, the weekend farmer's markets are great.

What Did You Do Before Getting Into Medicine (Radiology)?

Before medical school I spent a lot of time in California. I'm a huge fan of going to the beach and relaxing. If I'm traveling or hiking it's usually to somewhere with water. My mom is also from England, and I've really enjoyed the time I've spent traveling around the UK. My dream is to be able to spend a few months traveling there after I finish residency.
