Although originally from Massachusetts, I spent most of my life growing up in Colorado, where I met my wife. Together we left for the great unknown of Chicago, where I went to medical school at Midwestern University, before moving to Connecticut for residency. Professionally, I am undecided between my interests of being a hospitalist and pursing a more outpatient-focused specialty such as endocrinology or rheumatology. When not at work, I enjoy lounging at home, whether that means watching Netflix, playing video games, reading or enjoying a glass of wine with a home-cooked meal.

I was born and raised in the beautiful city of Cebu, Philippines with a dream of one day becoming a physician. At present, I am inclined to the possibility of pursuing a fellowship in cardiology. However, I am keeping my options open. Outside of medicine, I love to travel, read, watch musicals, and spend time outdoors.
