About me: I love science. Sometimes, it loves me back.
I also enjoy music (both making and spectating), sports (same rule as music), writing (yes, it can be fun, ok?), and cheering on the Buckeyes.
Comment about the MSTP program: While I was tempted to leave Ohio (having spent my entire life here), the MSTP at Case took hold of me from my first steps on campus and wouldn't let go. Whether it's our world-renowned science community, our nationally-ranked hospital system. our incredibly supportive administration (which I can attest to from personal experience), or my highly accomplished, unique-in-their-own-way classmates and friends in the program, I'm fortunate that, if I have to make the long haul of physician-scientist training, I have the opportunity to do so here.
