Years of Experience

Doctor Thinker?

Doctor Thinker came to life one night while my wife and I were discussing how best to get my thoughts out and accessible. This website represents the intersection of my profession as a doctor and my passion as a thinker. I will initially start with blog posts about a myriad of topics and will later expand into other areas of interest. As mentioned in my bio, I thoroughly enjoy reading, and as a result, I have sought to link certain concepts across literary disciplines and apply them to life as it unfolds around me.

You can also participate actively in this  journey by providing feedback on content and posing questions you would like me to explore.

Join me for the journey!
