MD: Loyola University Chicago, Stritch School of Medicine
Academic / Professional Bio: 

Where are you from?
Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. Did medical school and first year of residency in Chicago, IL.   
Why did you choose UA Family Medicine?
My real life answer is long and nuanced. But suffice to say that I really enjoy learning and teaching and being exposed to a wide breadth within medicine, and the UA Tucson program seemed to be a great fit.
What are you most excited about for life in Tucson? 
I look forward most to enjoying time with colleagues and leading an active lifestyle outside of work.  
What are your interests or hobbies outside of medicine? 
Hiking, running, backpacking, biking, reading and coffee. (the abbreviated list)
What are your professional interests within medicine? 
Evidence based practice, preventative medicine, osteopathy, family/individual counseling, health policy/community level interventions.
Favorite way to spend a day off? 
Hike or run in the morning, then breakfast at home followed by a slow coffee while watching a bike race or reading a book. And getting to do all of that with my amazing wife makes it twice as great : )
Top item on your "Bucket list"?
I think I’m still working on defining the top item.. Maybe check back in a couple of years.
