I am an emergency doctor at the University Health Network and an assistant professor of medicine at the University of Toronto. I research how storytelling can be used as a tool for building self-compassion in medical practice with a particular focus on changing the shame-based culture of medicine.


When I'm not practising medicine, I create. I am a photographer and creative non-fiction writer living and working in Toronto, Canada. I'm particularly interested in using storytelling to advocate and support humanitarian work locally and abroad. My work has been supported by a National Geographic Covid grant and can be found in various national media outlets.
