My journey to medicine was not a traditional one. After majoring in Politics as an undergraduate at Princeton, I went directly to Cornell Law School. After graduating, I moved to New York City and worked in a corporate law firm on litigation and contracts for television and cable news networks. Working endless hours left me unfulfilled and led me to question the value of my work. Ultimately, I decided that medicine was a better fit for me. I missed the human interaction and healing touch of being a physician. My 10-year journey to medicine involved a premedical baccalaureate, medical school, internship, residency and fellowship. I am now the Director of the Massachusetts General Hospital Dermatology Laser & Cosmetic Center where I train residents and fellows at Harvard Medical School. There is not a day that goes by that I am not grateful for my decision to go into medicine.

#withoutthewhitecoat I am a father to my three wonderful children. They are the most important joy in my life and the grounding I need to keep perspective about what is important in life. If I have learned anything in my life, it is to encourage my children to follow their chosen path with my unconditional love..
