I am a classically trained clarinetist.  Consequently, I spend a lot of time listening to music, especially classical music, opera, and musical theatre albums, and attend various performing arts events including the Philadelphia Orchestra and Opera Philadelphia.  I am also a sports fan, and having grown up in Wisconsin, my loyalties are to the Wisconsin Badgers, Green Bay Packers, and Milwaukee Brewers.

Clinically, I am interested in headache medicine, especially helping patients with episodic and chronic migraine, medication-overuse headache, cluster headache, and TBI-induced headache. I am interested in uncovering the mechanisms of migraine and photophobia, particularly using animal models to explore pathophysiology with the goal of developing new therapeutic tools for patients.
