Hobbies, facts and interests
Playing and watching basketball (Lakers fan for life), soccer (Liverpool fan since before I was born), playing and listening to music, playing with our pup Aero, relaxing with my wife, hiking, beach time, traveling.
I’ve also had a big interest in Disaster Medicine ever since I was able to go to Nepal after their devastating earthquake. I would love to incorporate travel/international/disaster medicine into my future career.
Anyone who walks into the department and sees the experience that we get will know that this is an amazing clinical program. Research, Park Medic, patient acuity/pathology, Peds, Trauma, AOC, the list goes on an on. I know that I learn by doing, and there is no better place to learn and do than Fresno. More than that though, with all the time and stress that goes into residency, I was looking for a place that would support me, a place where I would be surrounded by people who are fun, easygoing, and serious about their work all at the same time. This is it. The residents are amazing, the faculty are great, staff is beyond helpful, and I know my education here will prepare me for anywhere I want to go.
