Academic Interests

Primary disease prevention through lifestyle modification. 

My primary academic interests lie in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation and OMT.


Narrative (thoughts on the fellowship)

A passion for understanding human motion in the context of health and fitness has led me to pursue a career in Osteopathic Medicine.  Experience through the NMM/OMM Department has allowed me to develop a skillset in manual medicine that is proving to be a highly valuable asset.  I hope to be a strong advocate for Osteopathic Medicine as I progress through my career path.

Narrative (personal Hobbies/Interest)

Prior to medical school I was actively involved in: Adventure Racing, Kite Surfing, and Personal Training.  My current hobbies include painting, playing guitar, and hanging out with my wife and two dogs.
