I grew up in New Mexico but have lived in Portland since the early 2000s. I got my undergraduate degree in science from Portland State University and my medical degree from Oregon Health & Science University, where I also completed my internal medicine residency. My wife and our two boys love the Pacific Northwest!
I am an internist who specializes in hospital medicine. I enjoy this area for the wide variety of care needed and for all the different people I get to meet and take care of. I have a special interest in point-of-care ultrasound and using ultrasound as a tool to improve care.
I thrive by focusing on many different aspects of wellness, including exercising daily, eating almost as many fruits and veggies as my children, and trying for seven hours of sleep a day. I also love reading fiction, fly fishing, and camping.
