Where were you born and raised?

I was born in Chicago, Illinois and raised in Indian Harbour Beach, Florida.

What is your favorite part about being an ophthalmologist?

The field of ophthalmology is always moving forward. This is especially true for the subspecialty of glaucoma, where recent advances have given us more treatment options than ever. I value establishing personal relationships with my patients, so that together we can choose an individualized treatment plan that will help them achieve their best vision. 

Favorite thing to do outside of work?

I love spending time with my family and especially my son. We like to stay active by hiking, biking, and playing tennis.
