specialty interests
Full-spectrum general Internal Medicine (adult primary care, ages 18+) with particular emphasis on the metabolic syndrome (diabetes, hypertension, insulin resistance, obesity, hyperlipidemia, and hyperuricemia), life extension / longevity / biohacking, functional medicine, metabolism, nutrition, thyroid issues, gut health, inflammation, cancer prevention, and patient empowerment. I also have a growing interest in the use of Medical Thermography in primary care.

personal
I grew up in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, DC. and spent many years working in the computer industry. That was okay, but at the end of the millennium, I decided to find something that was more personally meaningful that also involved working with people. After a brief stint in massage therapy (relaxing, but not challenging) I went back to school to pursue a career in medicine. Medical training took me to Pennsylvania; somewhere in there I got married and blessed with two adorable and awesome kids. After residency my family moved around a bit. We’ve lived in Maine (too cold), Mississippi (too hot), and we’re now happy to be settling into this just-right part of North Carolina. My hobbies include contra dancing, web-surfing, puzzle-solving (particularly biological and human puzzles), and a bit of music-making and strategy gaming when I can find the time.
