Full bio

Whether managing the US Government's largest privatization, merging industrial giants Alcoa and Reynolds Metals, or helping defense companies go public after 9/11, I enjoy being involved in important industries with big challenges. I had shunned healthcare for years after growing up as a pathologist's son and hospital administrator's grandson. The tide definitely turned when he married an ER doctor and teamed up with Chirag to start Accesa Health and Accesa Labs. 

When I am not chasing around my two daughters and son, I can generally be found at a local CrossFit box or chipping golf balls around my yard.
