What are your hobbies? I love sports and I am an avid bay area sports fan. I love cooking, cocktails, and exercising.
Family info: My wife Anna and I were married in October of 2019, she is the best person ever and works as a pediatrician at Mercy. We have one son named Whit who is an English Golden. I have four younger siblings (Joey, Gianna, Paul, Jacqueline) that all do very interesting things – I am incredibly proud of them.
What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?
I once played a competitive baseball game against the inmates of San Quentin. Yes, there is a baseball diamond inside the walls of San Quentin.
Why did you choose your Gyn Onc fellowship at Washington University School of Medicine?
Dr. Mutch has great jokes!
What impact have you had on the Fellowship?
Very little at this point. But I hope to make each resident better in some way – whether they are going to be an obstetrician, a reproductive endocrinologist, or an oncologist.
How has your opinion of the Fellowship changed since starting your training?
Not at all. They made some big promises and to this point it has lived up to every promise that was made.
What are the greatest opportunities you have had to make a difference?
I was raised in a family that stressed the importance of service. The fellow’s clinic allows me to fulfill a passion of mine that was ingrained in me from a young age. We are able to take care of patients that are undeserved in the community.

I love that it is a huge sports town. Before COVID we went to a Cardinals v. Giants game. The fans were remarkably kind and welcoming. I also really love the parks – I often run through Forest Park to and from work and it is beautiful.
What is one thing people don’t know about St.Louis/Washington University?
St. Louis has not disappointed and Wash U is an amazing place. It obviously has a stellar reputation in the medical community, however the people are what make it great.
