I am a lifelong Jayhawk. After graduating from Tonganoxie High School, I have been at the University of Kansas completing my undergraduate and medical educations as well as Internal Medicine residency training. In 2008 I joined the faculty as a Hospitalist and since 2010 I have been an assistant Internal Medicine clerkship director on the Kansas City campus.

The part of my job I most enjoy are the interactions with third year medical students. Their journey from seasoned learner at the beginning of the third year to budding clinician by the end is exciting to be part of. The students' enthusiasm for patient care, excitement with diagnosing and treating problems and insight into the complexities of their chosen profession are all admirable. I truly feel I learn more from the students than I teach them.

Besides my love for all things crimson and blue, I am a proud husband to Amy and daddy to Eli, Audrey and June. We enjoy going to sporting events in Lawrence and Kansas City as well as hanging out and building train tracks and playing with action figures and baby-dolls while at home.
