Originally from Southern California, I have a degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology from Johns Hopkins University and Reproductive and Cancer Biology from Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. I went to medical school at University of Maryland and then did my surgery residency at University of Arizona, where I was selected to serve as the administrative chief resident. I then did a formal fellowship in thoracic surgery at Temple University and Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia and then an advanced fellowship at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center in Buffalo focused on minimally invasive thoracic surgical oncology. I currently serve as the Co-Director of Thoracic Oncology at UTMC. I spend most of my free time trying to keep up with my daughter, and in the time I get to myself I enjoy reading, movies, and video games.

Clinical Focus:
Lung cancer, esophageal cancer, mediastinal masses, benign esophageal conditions, airway surgery, minimally invasive, robotic surgery, prehabilitation, enhanced recovery after surgery
