Interests & Hobbies

I enjoy hanging out and goofing around with my wife, Sophie, and our dog, Fern. My hobbies are not so unique to this EM program, however they are passions nonetheless! I love all forms of climbing, skiing and trail running. Generally, I'm just happy to be outside and explore. I started surfing in Maine and will miss the ocean while in Utah, but am stoked for such a variety of beautiful landscapes to visit here. Otherwise, I have a big, vibrant family and enjoy spending time with them, especially 'home' on the Long Island Sound in New York. My favorite book is Walden and my favorite ice cream is pistachio.

Why Utah?

The sense of community and energy I experienced on my rotation in Utah was something special. I felt welcomed immediately and was struck by the balance between clinical strength and outdoor adventure that the residents were able to maintain. I could not be more excited to join this group of intelligent, driven and well-rounded folks.
