I am ecstatic to stop living out of a suitcase and call Albany home for the next 4 years!

I worked for a number of years in graphic design before returning to school for medicine. Away from the hospitals and clinics, I enjoy baseball (Go O's!), philosophy, and classical music, but find the greatest rewards in the time I spend with my family. Albany is a charming city with lots to offer.

I like that Albany has a lot of nature (something I missed in NYC!) and is not too busy of a city, but is an easy bus ride to NYC.

I enjoy both cooking at home and trying new restaurants.
