Where are you from?
I was born in Indiana, but spent most of my life growing up in Iowa.
Why did you choose UA Sports Medicine?
I am really excited about the opportunities that were available here. I also had a really great experience when I was here for my interview and knew that this would be a great place to train with great faculty mentors. Getting away from the snow for a little bit sounded nice too!
What are you most excited about for life in Tucson?
I am looking forward to checking out some of the hiking trails around Tucson once it gets a little cooler.
What are your interests or hobbies outside of Medicine?
I enjoy spending time with my family which includes my wife and two boys. Our boys are enough to keep us busy, but I also enjoy bicycling, golfing, grilling, drinking craft beer, and of course watching sports!
What are your professional interests within Medicine?
I am really interested in using ultrasound. I think that it is a great tool to be able to use and I am intrigued to see all of the applications in the future.
Favorite way to spend a day off?
Having a lazy day at home with my family
Top item on your "Bucket list"?
I would like to summit a large mountain at some point (maybe Kilimanjaro?)
Another pretty high up goal is to attend a baseball game in all of the major league stadiums (I'm at 7 currently)
