After doing his surgery residency in Ann Arbor, MI, he has developed as a General, Trauma, Advanced Laparoscopic and Robotic surgeon and now practices in Maine, USA.
Throughout his career, he has focused in tapping the paradoxical power of technology to coexist with a better, more humane medical care.
As a healthcare futurist, being a full-time practicing surgeon, gives him the rare skills, qualities and advantages that clinicians have but most technology innovators lack.
That duality of expertise makes him a voice that definitely should be heard. A voice that impacts and addresses both ends of the spectrum, diversifying the target audience, feeding multiple interests and curiosities.
As an Exponential Medicine/ Singularity University alumnus and faculty, his passion is about the intersection of Innovation Technology and Healthcare.
“I know that the exponential development of technology and its smart use, will profoundly, positively impact the Healthcare system in ways that are difficult to even imagine”. After graduating from Singularity, “I have constantly worked to define myself as a Healthcare Futurist“.
He was one of the earliest GoogleGlass Explorers in the world, and was the FIRST Doctor to ever use Google Glass during live surgery. This event catapulted him into the digital medicine ecosystem, as a disrupter of established medical paradigms and traditional ways of practicing.
