When I am not at work, I enjoy listening to music and playing guitar. I love live music especially, and love finding new bands. I play board games, extra nerdy ones, and have too much emotionally invested in the Chicago Cubs. My wife and I have 4 kids, Lucy, Emma, Jane and Jude, a labradoodle named Auggie, and not a lot of free time. My career interests include resident and medical student education, MedPeds Hospital Medicine research, and the gradual takeover of the world by MedPeds physicians.
Why I Chose Peoria
My wife and I are from Central Illinois, and the hospital and medical school here are home for us. The MedPeds environment and the numerous MedPeds physicians in Peoria is what led us to a career in MedPeds, and we are grateful for the opportunity to practice around so many other excellent MedPeds doctors. Also, Peoria and the surrounding area is an easy place to work and live, easy place to raise a family, and fits our lifestyle well.
