Healthcare needs a dose of personality

I'm a doctor. I'm also a journalist, producer, host and on-camera correspondent. I use media in cool ways. No idea is too crazy as long as it's in the name of public health.

About Me

My performing, dancing, alter-ego

Medical storytelling needs the right blend of relatability, humor, and straight talk. Between live television, podcasts, digital video, and freelance productions, I've reported on a variety of things that can go wrong, or right, with our bodies and public health. My mission is to make the uncomfortable, comfortable and entertaining!

I enjoy being on camera and helping to make healthcare easy to understand.

More About Me

And then there's my serious, professional side.

Well, maybe not THAT serious. I'm one of those media healthcare personalities who still practices medicine. I'm a board-certified pediatrician, currently on faculty at Stanford Children's Hospital and UCSF.

I give keynotes, hold workshops, moderate panels, and consult for companies. I've also worked in the digital health space both as an advisor and on the founding team of a patient platform start-up.

I'm partial to non-profits and charitable causes. So holler if you're trying to make the world a better place. I'd love to jump kick my way into helping your mission.

I'm an MD that's thinks more like an MC
