He enjoys living in Boston with his wife, son, and dog, and is interested in health equity. In addition, he plays the violin — jazz, folk, blues, old-time, and classical music, and believes we can grow a greater sense of togetherness by building musical community. He is an advocate for ending stigma and discrimination regarding mental illness. Often, he can be found hiking in the Arnold Arboretum.
