Why MUSC:  MUSC has a great mix of fantastic residents and attendings in an established institution that still has the feel of a growing program that is evolving with each class.  I am grateful for the opportunity to stay in the wonderful community of Charleston and serve the population while soaking up high quality training at MUSC.
Hobbies: Anything outdoors but have always really been drawn to the water (nothing makes me happier than catching waves with friends), using my hands to build and fix things, hanging with my family friends especially my lovely wife and two crazy boys – to quote peanuts “happiness is being one of the gang”

Why MUSC: There are too many reasons to count. Most important to me was the outstanding residents and faculty that made me feel at home. They are one big family who clearly looks out for each other and wants everyone to succeed. Additionally, the academic reputation of MUSC was a major draw, and you really can't beat the lifestyle Charleston offers with both a major city and beach-side town feel.
Hobbies: Anything on the water! (my favorites include wake boarding and wake surfing), golf, big Alabama football fan
