I'm an internist and medical geneticist with a background in both Clinical Cancer Genetics and rare disease drug development. Currently, I'm a Sr. Medical Director at Ultragenyx Pharmaceutical Inc., a rare genetic disease therapeutics-focused biotech located in Novato, CA.

Previously, I was at another rare disease-focused biotech - BioMarin Pharmaceutical Inc. and also had a boutique biotech/healthcare consultancy. Representative previous clients include: Integrated Diagnostics, Inc. and the Genomic Medicine Institute at El Camino Hospital.

Before that, I was Director, Clinical Research and Senior Director, Medical Affairs at Perlegen Sciences, and I've also been a junior faculty member in the Department of Medicine/Division of Medical Genetics at the University of Washington.

I grew up in San Diego, where I was into anything and everything involving water (mostly surfing, fishing, boating, and snorkeling). These days, I still like to do these things when I can (with some SUP and kayaking thrown in) and I am hopelessly fascinated with the X's and O's of college football.
