What excites you about teaching at Marietta College?
The interactions with the students and seeing them transform themselves into mature clinical providers.
When you aren’t teaching, what other activities do you enjoy?
Professionally, I enjoy my job as a radiologist and giving radiology lecture to various audiences including medical students, radiology residents, ER residents and practicing clinicians. Outside of work I enjoy any activity involving my family. I also enjoy staying in shape, sports, especially Cleveland teams and OSU, and eating, which makes staying in shape more challenging.
