Where did you grow up?
North Jersey
How long have you practiced in the Washington, DC area and what do you like most about it?
I've been in DC for a little over a year now and I love the variety of activities the area has to offer. You have the great things about city life such as history, the museums, and the restaurants, but only a short car ride away you have beautiful hikes and other outdoor activities.
What do you most enjoy doing outside of your clinical practice, when you’re not working?
My wife and I love exploring both the city and the numerous national parks in the DMV area. We are about to welcome our first child in November, and I am sure he will keep us busy. I also enjoy playing soccer in the adult leagues in the area and am a big Chelsea FC supporter.
