Academic / Professional Bio: 

Where are you from?     
I lived the first year of my life in Provo, Utah. I grew up in Rochester, NY, as well as across upstate NY, in both the Syracuse and Albany areas.
Why did you choose UA Family Medicine?    
I chose family medicine because of how I wanted to be involved in nearly everything medicine has to offer, and I truly enjoy being a part of people’s lives. UA Family Medicine provides such a great opportunity to be involved in full-spectrum family medicine, where you can experience the breadth that medicine has to offer.
What are you most excited about for life in Tucson?    
I was surprised to learn how much of a foodie scene there is in Tucson! As someone who loves to eat everything – from Sonoran dogs to fancier faire, I’m excited to discover what Tucson has to offer. Also, the nearby mountains and terrain are so beautiful.
What are your interests or hobbies outside of medicine?    
As a husband, and father of two lively children, I love doing all sorts of things: video and board games, imaginative play, playing guitar and painting, outdoor games and sports, cooking and eating, movies and TV – I’m easy to please.
What are your professional interests within medicine?     
I like to be involved with lots of things with a changing variety, so I’m hoping to practice full-spectrum family medicine.
Favorite way to spend a day off?    
I like to spend my mornings slow, doing some exercise, making a good breakfast. Then spending the day playing with my kids, making a nice dinner and then bike riding or longboarding around the neighborhood with my family. Finishing the day off with my wife watching my shows and talking!
Top item on your "Bucket list"? 
I hope to travel to so many places, but Italy is at the top right now.
