I grew up in Montana and Kansas City before moving to Seattle to go to UW for my undergraduate degree in Bioengineering. I then went to medical school at UW, taking a 1-year break halfway through to do cardiology research at Mount Sinai in NYC. I completed internal medicine residency at Penn in Philadelphia, and then moved back to Seattle to work at UW prior to starting fellowship. I’m a huge hockey, husky, and KC Chiefs fan. My wife and I love cooking, trying new food, and taking our baby daughter and two dogs on adventures throughout the PNW.
