Interests and Career Goals

LGBT health, health equity and diversity, transgender health advocacy, integrated and collaborative care, activism through grassroots, organizational, and academic avenues

Favorite Pastimes

  • Photography 
  • Video editing - I have a YouTube channel where I talk about health literacy for minority patients. A huge part of the content I publish focuses on making sure trans patients are informed in the medical decisions they make for themselves. 
  • Cooking - I keep bellies full! 
  • Weightlifting, martial arts, and being a sporty guy in general

Strengths of the Program

Duke has celebrated me as a transgender man and is proud of the achievements I have made in the field of medicine. I have no doubt that they will give me the avenue to continue the advocacy platform I have worked so hard for in making sure all patients have a place at the table
