I was born in Maine, educated at Yale, the University of Vermont Medical School and residency at the University of Connecticut. The furthest I have ventured from Maine was two exciting years practicing emergency medicine in New York City. I am currently an Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine at UMass Medical School and an attending at Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, Massachusetts.
I am passionate about EKGs. I have studied and collected EKGs for over 30 years, the entire time as an emergency medicine physician. For the last 20 years I have been the EKG specialist in the emergency department at Baystate Medical Center, and have had the pleasure of teaching scores of wonderful emergency medicine residents and medical students. More recently I have been able to transfer this fund of knowledge to broader audiences at both national and international venues—from Poland to Argentina to Vietnam.
