About me

My wife Laura, our five sons, daughter, and I live in the Boston, Massachusetts area. I also work with a group called Eventide in socially responsible and values-based investing. Previously, I served as a Principal with Clarus Ventures, a health care venture capital firm.


I completed a combined MD-PhD program at Harvard Medical School in 2003 (HST Society and the MSTP fellowship). I did my PhD in Harvard's Department of Chemistry & Chemical Biology with Stuart Schreiber. After my MD-PhD, I did my residency and fellowship at the Brigham & Women's Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. Next I worked at the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT in Medical & Population Genetics where I did research with David Altshuler and Mark Daly.

Because of an interest in signals and systems theory, I did a Masters at MIT with George Verghese who is in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.

In 1995 I completed my undergraduate studies at Caltech where I majored in chemistry. My research advisors were John Abelson and Peter Dervan.


I have been a practicing Christian for many years. I fellowship with a church called Followers of the Way. I have a keen interest in biblical interpretation and church history, for the purpose of fostering a strong and vibrant church today. Periods that I have spent time on include ante-Nicene Christianity, Reformation and Anabaptist history, and the Great Awakenings of the eighteenth and nineteenth century.

For those who call themselves Christians, I wrote a book called King Jesus Claims His Church that I strongly recommend reading. It can be purchased from amazon.com by clicking here or obtained from Scroll Publishing at a cheaper price by clicking here.

In 2003, I compiled and edited a volume of Charles Finney's sermons, entitled True Christianity. It can be purchased from amazon.com by clicking here.
