I was born in Illinois. I graduated from Chicago Medical School, Rosalyn Franklin Health Sciences in 1997 with a Masters of Science in Physician Assistant (PA). I have always had an interest in Orthopedics. Prior to PA school I was an athletic trainer at the University of Illinois. After graduation, I moved to southern California where my wife is from. We lived there for six years before coming to the Northwest. My wife is a Physician Assistant as well; in Dermatology. We have two children. I love sports and am involved in many outdoor activities.
I am one of the two Physician Assistants in Fracture Care. We have a very efficient and caring support staff here. You will find this team very helpful from the time you call for an appointment. We try to get patients back to their normal activities as soon as possible with a great recovery.
I am active, both physically and mentally. I have participated in several half Iron Man competitions. I enjoy long cycle rides with friends. I have competed in the Hood to Coast race with a wonderful team made up of Medical professionals. I also due quite a bit of hiking and camping.
