About Me: Born and raised in New Jersey and spent 8 years in Newark going to college and medical school. I was there my entire life, so I figured why not somewhere new. I chose Albany because I think it has the perfect mix of everything (except maybe the snow). I’m very big into sports, both playing and watching. I used to play rugby in college, but now I’m playing more volleyball, soccer, and racquetball. When I want to relax, you can find me playing board or video games or exploring the area. I am very excited for where the next four years are going to take me, and I don’t think I could have chosen a better place to call my new home!
