I am an emergency doctor at the University Health Network and an assistant professor of medicine at the University of Toronto. When I'm not practising medicine, I create. I am a photographer and creative non-fiction writer living and working in Toronto, Canada.


I use storytelling to shed light on the shame-based culture of medicine. I want to advocate for a sustainable workforce in medicine through a deep reflection on shame resilience, empathy, vulnerability, self-compassion, and gratitude. 


My work has been supported by a National Geographic Covid grant and can be found in various national media outlets.
