Q: How long have you been at UVA and where were you before you came to UVA?

I am starting my third year at UVA as faculty. I did my fellowship in pediatric orthopedic and scoliosis surgery at Rady Children’s Hospital. I completed my residency at the Cleveland Clinic. I went to medical school at VCU after completing my undergraduate studies here at UVA.

Q: Is there something that you’ve worked on or accomplished in your career that you’re particularly proud of or glad you were able to experience?

I am happy to experience the time with every patient that I take care of. I am proud to be working toward improving patient’s understanding of their health care and increasing patient involvement in decisions to best fit their needs.

A veterinarian.

Q: A favorite spot to grab lunch during the day?

I usually pack my lunch – sometimes the day can be unpredictable in the operating room or clinic.

Q: Do you have any children or fur babies at home that you would like to tell us about?

My wife, Anne, and I have 2 boys, William “Will” and Edward “Eddie”. Will is almost 4 and Eddie is 4 months. We also have 2 dogs, Magnolia and Jodie-Belle, and a cat, Archibald Wallace, to complete the menagerie at home.

Q: Do you have a favorite local restaurant or hangout spot?

Hardywood opened up recently down the street from the hospital, and we will stop in there every so often.

Q: Anything else you’d like to add?

Really happy to call Charlottesville home now and very much enjoying meeting the wonderful people in our region through work and play.
