About Duke University and Durham

Where did you choose to live, and why?

I am still deciding! A short commute from Old West Durham would be ideal, but we’re also drawn to the larger lots available in Hillsborough.

What do you like to do outside of medicine?

Spend time with my young daughters, preferably outdoors. I managed a small woodlot in New England during medical school and hope to find something similar near Durham.

Any other information you’d like people to know (i.e.: about your family, future plans, etc.)
My wife and I were married at the Fayetteville courthouse when I was stationed at Fort Bragg. We’re excited to be back in NC!
