I am originally from Colorado, but have called the Charlotte area home for more than a decade. While radiation oncology is a uniquely technology-driven specialty, it is the relationship formed with my patients that inspires me each and every day. When not at work, I enjoy tennis, running, photography, and, more than anything else, spending time with my wife and 3 children.
