He did a combined BS/MD program at Saint Louis University, majoring in biomedical engineering as an undergraduate. Residency training took him east, where he completed his training in ophthalmology at Drexel University in Philadelphia and Sinai Hospital in Baltimore. He started at UVA in July 2020 as the retina fellow.
