Where were you born and raised?

I was born on the West Coast of Peru, but my family moved to the United States when I was very young. Growing up we lived in several locations across Central New Jersey.

What is your favorite part about being an ophthalmologist?

Ophthalmology is a beautiful field! The complexities and detailed-oriented approach are the attributes I enjoy the most, and no ophthalmic subspecialty embodies these attributes more than vitreoretinal surgery. I also take great pride in building physician-patient relationships by spending time with and educating my patients.

Favorite thing to do outside of work?

I love attending sporting events and exercising.
