About

Bio

I am an Interventional pain physician practicing in St Petersburg florida. I am originally from Toronto and came to the US for undergrad in California to study marine biology. I realized I would rather keep marine biology as a hobby rather than a career. I completed my bachelors in biology then a four year Master's degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine, which I followed with a one year apprenticeship in Hangzhou China. I followed that with Med school in VA and then residency in Anesthesiology and fellowship in Interventional Pain management at UF in Florida. My hobbies are basically anything around the water.
