Why I'm a JPAL

As a recently practicing critical care physician I spent much of my career adapting devices and technologies to improve patient care and outcomes at the bedside. I have an understanding of the unmet need of both patients and clinicians as well as a business and strategy perspective. That experience with a background as a basic and clinical researcher, medical safety officer and medical ethicist currently serving on our Bioethics Committee at J&J (JJBC), I feel that I can provide insight into innovative product development and advice on how to overcome the barriers that may present a challenge entrepreneurs.

Fun fact:

As a sports fan, two memorable events are playing varsity basketball all through college including on the court before an NBA Nets game. The other is that I had the opportunity to hold the Stanley Cup when Ken Daneyko brought it to the children's hospital for the kids to see.
