Biography Information
I was born in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, but have spent most of my life in Birmingham, Alabama. After high school I attended the University of Alabama where I played baseball, studied premed, and watched The Tide roll to multiple national championships. After undergrad I took a year off to apply/interview for medical school and worked part-time at a popsicle shop called Steel City Pops. I began medical school in 2015 at UAB, but it was not until my ophthalmology elective during 3rd year that I knew this is what I want to do. During medical school I also got married to my wife, Allie, and we have a baby boy (well, he's actually a dog) named Sir. Some things that Allie and I have loved most about Jackson are the food, our awesome neighbors, and of course hanging out with my co-residents. Some of my hobbies include golfing, cycling, and watching sports.
