Why did you choose UCLA for residency?
UCLA met what I was looking for in a residency program on many levels. In the end, a few factors were very influential regarding my decision to choose UCLA for residency. I really liked the true 50/50 split between working at an academic institution and a county facility. Location is great and for me it is close to family. Lastly, and probably the biggest reason I chose UCLA, were the quality relationships I witnessed not only among the residents, but between the residents and faculty as well.
What are your areas of interest within EM or future career plans?
I am very interested in global health and disaster response. I also have an interest in sports medicine and wilderness medicine.
What is your favorite place to visit/thing(s) to do in/memory from living in LA?

What else do you do in your free time? What hobbies do you have?
