I was born and raised outside of Raleigh, N.C., and attended North Carolina State University for undergraduate school, where I received a degree in biology with a minor in economics. I worked at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill as a lab technician in their Comprehensive Cancer Center prior to attending medical school at the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University. I plan to pursue a fellowship in vascular surgery and have been doing research with the department here at Wake Forest University School of Medicine School of Medicine School of Medicine School of Medicine School of Medicine School of Medicine. I am a passionate N.C. State sports fan, even though they always find a way to break my heart. My wife and I have grown to love Winston-Salem and it has been a great place to start a family.
