I am lucky to be married to a saint who was very understanding when I told her I wanted to do a two year fellowship in Neurocritical care. The hard work has paid off, and now I’m at an amazing institution with amazing people to work for and with. The supportive environment, state-of-the art technology, knowledgeable and driven colleagues, and smart and teachable residents makes my work-life a pleasure.

My wife, three kids, and I moved to New Mexico from the Midwest and we absolutely love it here. I spend most of my time off watching my son’s soccer games or band concerts, my daughter’s dance practice and recitals, and chasing after my four year old, who doesn’t stop moving. When not playing with my kids, I also enjoy hiking, mountain biking, skiing, climbing, and date nights with my wife.
