I’m a hospice and palliative medicine physician at Transitions LifeCare working primarily in community-based palliative care and am thrilled to be the site lead for our organization as part of UNC’s Hospice and Palliative Medicine fellowship. Our robust community-based hospice and palliative care experience is something very unique about our program, so I’m always excited to share that with our fellows! I live in Durham with my wife Lindsay, our two daughters Olivia (2) and Luna (6 weeks), and our miniature schnauzer Ringo. I try to stay busy outside of work with homebrewing and exploring craft beer, listening to and studying hip hop, cooking, reading, doing Peloton work outs, stressing out over my hometown Boston professional sports teams and University of Michigan collegiate teams, and going on local adventures with our family.
