Currently, I am a 2nd year graduate student at Case Western Reserve University training to become a Certified Anesthesiologist Assistant (graduation May 2018). I live in Cleveland, Ohio with my wife and three children (Cecilia age 4, David age 3, Leo age 1.5).

In addition to clinical anesthesia, I also enjoy human physiology research (particularly coronary blood flow regulation, sympathetic control of the circulation, and exercise physiology). I received my PhD from Kent State in 2009. From 2010 - 2016, I conducted research at Penn State College of Medicine in Hershey, PA. During this time, students working in my lab published a total of 12 peer-reviewed manuscripts and I received funding from several different grant agencies.

In the future I intend to perform both clinical care and clinical research. I believe that research makes anesthesia better for patients. On the other hand, providing clinical care enables researchers to conduct better experiments. Throughout my career I will strive to be excellent as both a clinician and scientist.
