I like to play a wide variety of sports, but soccer is my main one. I played soccer from 4 years old all the way through college as an NCAA athlete. I have also been a soccer referee for 18 years. I’m always ready for a pickup game. My cleats stay in the trunk of my car just in case.

I also enjoy escape rooms. I've completed a few so far, but I am always looking to add to the list!

What you like to do in free time?
If I’m not at the soccer field, I enjoy spending time with my wife and daughter. We are always finding new adventures in Jackson. For instance, we have recently grown attached to the Children's Museum. My daughter LOVES it!

What do you like about the program?
It felt like a family atmosphere here. I clicked with the other fellows and attendings from the beginning, and the city is very similar to what I was used to growing up. I enjoy the warmer weather in this neck of the woods.
