How I fell in love with emergency medicine: I was originally interested in prehospital medicine during college and got into the field by becoming a paramedic in the Army. After training, deployments and taking care of casualties, I knew I wanted to become a doctor. Specializing in emergency medicine seemed like a natural fit. During residency, I realized how useful and necessary ultrasound is when taking care of emergency department patients. I am completing an ultrasound fellowship in order to become a better sonographer, clinician and teacher.

Three things people may not know about me:
  • I am happily married with three wonderful kids and a three-legged cat (wife’s cat).
  • I was a medic in the Army with the 2nd Ranger Battalion and deployed twice to Afghanistan.
  • I was never a big fan of facial hair, but it started growing on me, and I have recently sported a ridiculous N95-compliant mustache.

    I'm watching the show warfighters in your one of the people being featured. Amazing! I'm a social worker with homeless veterans in the veterans administration. Welcome home, Doctor!
