In the highly technology-driven specialty of clinical cardiac electrophysiology, I strive to provide patient-centered care based on the highest quality scientific evidence, best clinical practices, and effective communication in the framework of shared decision making. Together, these principles allow me to empower patients to make informed, autonomous arrhythmia care decisions consistent with their personal goals and values.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and three children. I am an avid cyclist, skier, and guitarist.
