Without my white coat, I am an adventure seeker. I am a wanderer, looking for the next corner of the planet to explore, to learn a new culture, learn a new language or try new cuisine. I yearn for the opportunity to break out of my bubble, to gain perspective of the world around me, and find the beauties of the world.

When I’m not traveling the world, if I’m not in the hospital you’ll most often find me in a sweat. I love playing sports, working out, and doing anything that will keep me persistently tachycardic. Crossfit, hiking, climbing, snowboarding, playing baseball, and the list goes on! I was a college athlete, and while I’m no longer playing competitive sports, I still have that competitive drive and love having an outlet to challenge myself from a physical standpoint.

With my platform @neurofitnessMD, I aim to strike a balance between providing resourceful content about neurosurgery and life as a resident, with showing the importance of maintaining a work-life balance, even during the most demanding times in our lives. Follow me on my journey toward becoming a neurosurgeon!
