I completed my undergraduate studies at Indiana University in Bloomington in Biology where I was also heavily involved with Timmy Global Health there for four years. Currently I am a first year medical student at IU School of Medicine. Being a part of Timmy, where I learned about global health disparities and worked with several amazing volunteer physicians, made me want to pursue medicine as a career. To me, the most interesting thing about healthcare is the unique and complex nature of the health challenges every community might face. I am honored to be a finalist with my team members and know that this would be an excellent opportunity to learn and grow as future medical professionals.

Michael hails from West Lafayette, IN and is a 2nd year medical student at Indiana University School of Medicine and an alumnus of Purdue’s College of Pharmacy. He loves everything life has to offer, and thus has trouble saying “no”. Prior to medical school, known as the Exile to Knowledge, he could be found in the gym, at the movies, fishing, building bicycles, in an orchestra, in a hammock, or anywhere else adventure was to be found. This includes places like rural Jamaica, El Salvador, or Ecuador where he served as the Purdue Timmy medical brigade trip leader. His passion for serving others has overcome language barriers and connected him and humbled him by meeting some of life’s most resilient and zealous people.
