Hello, I am a third year WUSM student and identify as a gay male. I was born and raised in Kalamazoo, Michigan and studied neuroscience at the University of Michigan. I then completed two years of AmeriCorps in Washington, DC where I served in a Federally Qualified Health Clinic, providing HIV and STI testing and counseling services to a predominantly LGBTQ population. My clinical interests include the mental health and substance abuse disorders that disproportionately affect the LGBTQ community. Outside of school, you can find me going for a swim, water skiing, trying a new restaurant, watching a documentary, or going to a show.
