About Me

I'm a board-certified Internal Medicine physician and software developer who has been passionate about coding since I was a kid.

I recieved my bachelors degree from Cornell University where I also co-founded the largest student media group, and my MD from Albany Medical College where I did research in nanomedicine. I recently completed a residency program in Internal Medicine from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

Along the way, I've developed apps for healthcare and other industries, worked with machine learning applied to clinical data, and co-founded a TechStars-backed health tech startup.
