Class of 2019
BS – Economics – St. Olaf College
MD – University of Minnesota

Interests: “True to mindset of emergency medicine, I’m interested in more activities than I have time for. I love the Twin Cities because I get the benefits of a city (great food, music, sports, events), but have access to cross-country skiing, road biking, mountain biking, and great outdoor running. I like music and film and I go to a few concerts a year (preferably outdoor), and at home when nobody’s listening I play the guitar and harmonica. Creative projects are very fulfilling for me too, which range from making podcasts and videos, to just working on my car or making a picture frame for my living room.”

Lastly, discovering new music/artists and going to live shows is also a huge passion.”
