Academic Title: Clinical Associate Professor

"As a young child I was drawn to the field of medicine, possessing a strong desire to help improve the lives of patients and their families. The world of pediatrics was a natural fit for me as I love the resilience, energy, excitement and fun that children have to offer. Providing these children and their families with the best medical care and experiences while navigating our complex medical system, has served as my inner compass throughout my career. I fully respect and appreciate the privilege I have in caring for someone elses child. Having my own two daughters has further reinforced my guiding principles, has made me a better and more understanding pediatrician, and continues to serve as an inspiration to improve the practice of pediatrics."

I completed my earlier training on the East Coast, having attended Brown University for undergraduate and SUNY Downstate for Medical School. My journey in pediatrics began at the Phoenix Childrens Hospital Maricopa Medical Center Pediatric Residency Program; I eventually joined on as faculty at Phoenix Childrens and the University of Arizona.

While in Phoenix I practiced as a hospitalist, associate director of our pediatric HIV clinic and director of medical student programs.My dream to be in the Pacific Northwest and be a part of Seattle Childrens Hospital has recently been realized as I join the division of hospital medicine as a hospitalist and clinical effectiveness consultant.Throughout my adventures, my wife, Dara and our two daughters, Madeline and Lola, serve as a my constant inspiration.
