What led you to Radiology as a profession?

It’s fun. It’s like a high stakes version of “Where’s Waldo?” You don’t know what he looks like; he could be on multiple pages; he could have invited friends; or he might not show up at all!

More seriously, I must be knowledgeable in all areas of medicine—internal, OB/GYN, pediatrics, orthopedics, neurology, trauma, infectious disease, etc.—and I play a critical, pivotal role in the delivery of excellent patient care.

What advice would you give to an aspiring radiologist?

Mark Twain said it best: “Find a job you enjoy doing and you will never have to work a day in your life”.  And that’s how I feel every day with vRad.

What are you passionate about personally?

I love to be active outdoors whenever possible, which comes naturally to the small, vibrant community I call home. I am a skiing fanatic—which also comes naturally to Lake Tahoe—and also enjoy mountain biking, SUPing, staying in shape and living a simple life with my family and sons.

And did I mention skiing? I love skiing!
