"Nothing without effort"
Originally from a small town outside Pittsburgh, I am studying medicine at Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. I am a member of JeffDesign, the first program at a US medical school devoted to design thinking in healthcare. Working with fellow medical students, I helped to found Circalux - a circadian friendly lighting company designing devices to help caregivers perform tasks overnight. I love college football, the Pittsburgh Penguins, creme brulee, and watching documentaries.
