I love good food, good people and good ideas. I am originally from Buffalo, NY and currently living in Israel (most of the time) with my awesome wife. I have just completed my M.D. degree at the Medical School for International Health in Beer Sheva, Israel where I advanced my passion for community and preventive health. I am particularly enthusiastic about identifying and leveraging multidisciplinary partnerships to advance global public health and social justice. I love meeting people from different backgrounds who are interested in projects that combine idealism with realism, and address the necessary economic and political practicalities in order to make a real impact on this world. I look forward to a career in family and preventive medicine and public health.
