  • Male

I was born and raised in Minnesota but have traveled extensively and enjoy exploring new cultures and ideas. During my medical training, I became interested in working with people who have cancer because of the unique relationships I developed with them. As a practicing oncologist, I continue to enjoy these relationships. I also enjoy the intellectual challenge of working with patients who have blood and clotting disorders.

In addition to my medical school training, I have completed training in clinical cancer research. I am currently working on projects investigating how the genetics of cancer cells affect disease prognosis and the effectiveness of current therapies in treating patients with advanced cancers. I am also fortunate to be involved in teaching medical students, residents and fellows.

When not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and three children. We enjoy walking around the lakes and attending concerts. I actively follow Minnesota sports teams.
