Residency: Cleveland Clinic
What drew me to Cardiology: The science of cardiology has always felt very intuitive to me since medical school. I had the great privilege to do my Internal Medicine training at the Cleveland Clinic where, under the mentorship and guidance of renowned cardiologists, I took care of patients with complex and sometimes critical cardiac diseases. It was truly amazing to see how physiology of the disease process informs medical decision making. I am equally impressed by the abundance of clinical trials that support most of the decisions made in cardiology, which continues to be an evolving field on the cutting edge.
What do I like to do in my free time: Going for a walk, reading, watching movies, eating out at different restaurants.

What drew me to Cardiology: I enjoy Cardiology as it is as challenging as it is rewarding. It is a constantly evolving specialty that requires excellent procedural and clinical skillsets with many interesting subspecialties to pursue. I am particularly interested in Cardiac Critical Care and enjoy observing real-time improvements in a patient's hemodynamics because of my interventions.
What do I like to do in my free time: Going to the gym, reading Sci-fi/Fantasy novels, cooking, exploring the outdoors and finding new restaurants to enjoy.

What drew me to Cardiology: My younger brother was born with congenital heart defects associated with Down Syndrome and from a very early age I enjoyed learning about both the normal and abnormal cardiovascular system. I took a fairly circuitous route to Cardiology but still enjoy learning about all things cardiac as I did when I was younger.
What do I like to do in my free time: Spending time with my wife and children. I love all things outdoors and any sort of DIY home project. I'm a big fan of anything with an engine or mechanical, especially all things automotive, and love working on my own cars.

Medical School: Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University
What drew me to Cardiology: I was drawn to Cardiology early on due to its strong connection with physics. I was a physics major during undergrad, and I soon became to realize Cardiology, in many ways, was applied physics. From cardiac physiology to echocardiography, nuclear stress testing, and even EKGs - it is basically all physics. Cardiology brought together my passion for medicine and helping others, with my love of physics.
What do I like to do in my free time: Spending time with my family, reading, running, basketball, mountain biking, cooking.
