I received my medical degree from Oregon Health & Science University School of Medicine and completed a family practice residency at the University of Nevada, School of Medicine in Reno, Nevada. I am board certified in Family Practice and have been practicing in the Portland, Oregon area since 1997.
I enjoy providing care for chronic and complex medical issues and appreciate the ability to develop long lasting relationships with patients. I am a strong advocate for healthy lifestyle choices with a focus on initiating and maintaining age appropriate and adequate exercise. I believe in minimizing the reliance on technology and look for the opportunity to reduce the number of medications for patients.
My wife and I enjoy traveling together and raising our two exuberant rescue dogs and our small flock of chickens. I have always enjoyed outdoor activities and in my spare time you will often find me at home making wine, cooking for a small group of friends, gardening, or even refining my woodworking skills.
