Key Accomplishments

I'm a medical doctor trained at UCSF with a masters degree in electrical engineering from Stanford. I've done a variety of work with technology startups, and founded a private medical practice in San Francisco where we leverage technology to make medical care personalized and accessible. I have extensive clinical experience working and serving in leadership roles in many settings across the health care spectrum, from rural emergency medicine, to urban hospitalist medicine, to house calls, to concierge outpatient practice.

I'm passionate about creating a best-case scenario in medical practice, pushing the limits to optimize outcomes for each individual. Technology to augment and empower this vision is part of the plan.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Collaboratively, making the most of the Venn diagram. Communication is important. Humor is essential.

As an Advisor

I'm very direct and honest, yet constructive, with my feedback and creative suggestions.
