I have devoted my professional life to understanding what makes cells become cancerous and how to turn that knowledge into the best possible treatments. I seek to empower my patients with knowledge about their disease and its treatments. For me, it is a privilege to provide cancer care and I strive to help patients realize their best possible quality of life.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife and 2 young sons. I love the mountains and spending time outdoors, hiking, road biking, mountain biking and rock climbing.

In particular, we are interested in helping develop and apply new immunotherapies to myeloma, especially antibody-based therapies.
