I chose to become a doctor because it is a gift to be able to journey with patients during their times of need and creatively offer my medical expertise to help make that journey a little bit easier. Through a variety of experiences during and after college, I discovered that I am most inspired when I am able to build authentic relationships with others. At its core, medicine is about spending time with patients, learning their stories, and building trust. In doing so, physicians have the privilege of partnering with patients to help them live healthy and meaningful lives, even in the face of immense suffering. I work with patients and families who are living with serious illness, with a focus on symptom management and maximizing quality of life. I enjoy learning what is most important to my patients and incorporating their goals into their care plans. Philosophically, I believe in whole-person care and rely on working in collaboration with an inter-professional team to ensure comprehensive care (physical, emotional, spiritual, etcetera) is offered to each individual patient. My areas of special interest include hospice and palliative medicine and palliative care for oncology. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two little girls. I love hiking in the woods, playing pickup basketball and reading too much about college football.
