Medical School:

University of California, Irvine

Resident Bio:

I am originally from California, born and raised in the San Francisco bay area. I love to stay active: skiing in the winter, mountain biking and hiking in the summer. There are few places better to do all of these things than Seattle. I recently completed two years of research conducting translational research in oncology advancing therapies for solid gastrointestinal tumors. I am interested in being an academic surgical oncologist.

Personal Interests:

Skiing, mountain biking, hiking, reading, Seinfeld

Clinical Interests:

Surgical oncology, gastrointestinal surgery, minimally invasive surgery

Professional Activities:

UW GME Policy Committee

Why UW?

I chose to join the UW Department of Surgery because of the broad and complex clinical exposure (tertiary university and county hospital, VA, pediatric and community hospital experience), the academic/research opportunities and the impressive faculty and residents. In addition, Seattle is a truly wonderful place to live and train to be a surgical resident.

What advice do you have for incoming interns?

Work hard, play hard, learn always.

What do you like best about living in Seattle?

There are many things I like about Seattle: it is a laid back, cosmopolitan city with great food and culture. Most importantly to me, it has great access to the outdoors, to the mountains and the water. The weather is mild year round and manageable. Summers are beautiful and winters are not bad (particularly if you like to ski or do other snow sports!).
