About Me

My undergraduate education led to a degree in electrical engineering from The Ohio State University. After that, I obtained my medical degree from The Medical College of Ohio (now the University of Toledo Medical School). Following medical school, I completed a residency in emergency medicine at the Orlando Regional Medical Center in Orlando, Florida. Then I traveled to Houston to participate in an emergency medical services fellowship under the direction of Dr. Paul Pepe and remained there for five years as associate medical director of the Houston Fire Department.

Currently, I'm on faculty with The Ohio State University as assistant professor of emergency medicine. I enjoy teaching residents and participating with local EMS agencies. Among my academic activities, I have authored or contributed to many publications and professional presentations concerning the subject of out-of-hospital cardiac care and the need for early recognition, response and treatment of heart attacks. I have also developed and implemented research concerning the subject of out-of-hospital resuscitation and emergency medical dispatch.

I'm now drawing on my undergraduate training in electrical engineering as I become more interested in the application of technology to medicine and EMS. I have developed numerous websites and written iPhone apps dealing with teaching and practicing medicine.
