Resident Bio:

I grew up in Minnesota before heading east for college at Harvard where I studied stem cell biology and visual arts. I returned to the midwest, and worked as a scribe for a year before beginning medical school at the University of Minnesota. I’m excited to move west and begin my surgical training at UW. Outside the hospital, I love to dive into local eats with my wife, experiment with 35mm film, find antique treasures and take our dogs on new adventures. I’m looking forward to exploring the natural beauty and rich culture that Seattle and the Pacific Northwest have to offer.
