Growing up reading Sherlock Holmes while immersed in graphic design, data visualization and the communication arts, biomedical Imaging is a good fit as it's cyclically disruptive while satisfying both end-users and patients with our Work Product, unconditional dedication and experiential education. Like the Red Queen, we are change agents who constantly run to stay in the same place. I like that.

After qualifying in Diagnostic Radiology and Nuclear Medicine, as erstwhile instructor in human neuroanatomy and organismal biology at the rather awesome University of Chicago, I underwent specialty training in neuroimaging and pediatric radiology. As a member of Team Thorax, it is professionally rewarding to engage in an MDT approach to actively manage complex thoracic cancers and interstitial lung disorders. Molecular Imaging (formerly, Nuclear Medicine) detects functional changes within us before structure changes; I especially enjoy routinely treating benign and malignant thyroid disorders on Fridays - a great forum for dedicated facetime with our patients.

Having historically practiced in federal, University and private sectors, TPMG is where I thrive because we symphonize first class evidence-informed practice, superior customer service management and active patient engagement.

I’m now and forever available to address your questions about imaging and radiation safety. We've got magic to do, just for you.
