Gus completed his undergraduate degree at the U of M in Global Studies, and has spent much of his time abroad, including a year in France, and time in Namibia working for a research institution. Gus became interested in emergency medicine from becoming a Wilderness First Responder and NR-EMT. This, combined with his experience in Namibia, lead him into the realm of zoonotic diseases and veterinary medicine. He completed his veterinary degree at the University of Glasgow in Scotland.

Gus is interested in zoonotic disease outbreak investigation, prevention, and epidemiology. Outside of work, Gus enjoys rock climbing, doing Brazilian Jiu jitsu, or running trails. He has an 11 year-old Staffordshire terrier mix breed dog named Sweet Pea.
