  • Family: I am married to Indy and we have 3 children; we also have a cat named Buddy.

  • Things I like about Raleigh: I have lived here since I was 6 years old. I like Raleigh’s familiarity (but I do miss Andy’s Pizza).
  • Favorite Vacation: Charleston, SC
  • Other careers considered before medicine: architect
  • When first considered becoming a pediatrician: 3rd year in Medical School
  • Why pediatrics: It’s a great setting – kids and the people who work in pediatrics tend to be a lot of fun – they definitely keep my interest and I enjoy the daily work environment
  • Favorite part of the workday: I have been at RCAM long enough to have patients I have seen from birth who are now entering college – when I see those kids in the office and talk to their parents, it is an awesome perspective.
  • Interests, hobbies: amateur woodworking, amateur graphic design
  • Sports allegiance: University of Kentucky – I enjoy my annual trip with my Dad to Lexington and Rupp Arena.
