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 empathy and kindness in medical practice.


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 create connections. I'm particularly interested in using storytelling to advocate and support humanitarian work locally and abroad.
