Resident Bio:

I grew up in Kalamazoo, MI in a pretty simple midwestern town. I attended Washington University in St. Louis and studied Biology/Neuroscience while playing tennis. For medical school I returned home to the University of Michigan which provided a wonderful springboard and support for a budding interest in Plastic surgery. For residency, I pointed myself west and was fortunate to match at the University of Washington. Over the last 5 years, Seattle has become home and a place for academic and personal interests to flourish. I enjoy spending as much time as possible exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest with my wife and friends. I’m grateful for the family atmosphere of our UW program, the world-class training, and the wonderful balance it provides to everyday life.
