I was born and raised in the Windy City of Chicago. Staying locally I went to DePaul University to complete my bachelors. Wanting to pursue a career in medicine, I decided to attend medical school at Ross University where I completed my medical education. Being a huge sports fan I am always looking to stay active playing everything from basketball, soccer, football, and everything in between. In addition to playing sports I am always keeping up with the latest scores and news. In my free time I love watching movies, going to new restaurants and just enjoying life with family and friends.
For my unforgettable journey up to this point in my medical career and in life, I give all the thanks to God for without Him, none of all this would have ever been possible.
Born & raised in Nairobi, Kenya, I am glad to call Albany my new home, away from home.To be part of such a welcoming residency program that gives exceptional training with resident growth as its cornerstone has always been my dream.

The southern hospitality and culture I experienced while in medical school made me want to stay in the south for a residency program. So I applied all over but Phoebe was outstanding. During the Interview, I was captivated by the beautiful atmosphere. The cancer center was an architectural masterpiece. It was beautiful. Everywhere I turned, there is someone smiling and saying hello, the residents and faculty are friendly, show genuine interest in my career and me as an individual. At the end of the interview trail, I knew Phoebe Putney Memorial hospital Family medicine residency program is the place for me. So I am excited and grateful for this great opportunity. I am proud to call Albany, GA my new home and Phoebe my family.
I've been a resident of Monroe County, Georgia all of my life. Mine has always been a farming family. Like every generation before us, my sisters and I grew up milking cows and working in the fields. As the only boy, I took over the farm after returning home from military service. In turn, I passed it on to my nephew so that I could pursue a life in medicine. I received all of my formal education, from first grade through medical school, from Georgia public schools. I received my medical degree from the Medical College of Georgia.
My goal has always been to practice Family Medicine in a rural Georgia county. When I rotated at Phoebe early in my fourth year of medical school, I knew this was where I wanted to attend residency training. The people here still have the open, friendly manner of the rural south and the unopposed program will help me become the well rounded jack of all trades that I need to be in a rural county.
In my spare time, I enjoy running, cooking, reading, hiking, camping and playing with my kids. I like to travel to and live in austere areas, particularly in Latin America, in order to give what I can to the people who don't have the opportunities that most of us in this country take for granted. In return, they teach me what is truly important in life.
