Hello! The first two questions I am always asked are “how tall are you” and “did you play basketball”. Well, I am 6’7” and yes, I played basketball in college. Now that is out of the way, on to the good stuff!
As Erie residents for the past few years, my wife Dani and I (+3 kids) have felt the heart and soul this growing town has and want to be part of it personally and professionally for decades to come.
While attending medical school in Phoenix, I knew right away I wanted to care for everyone of all ages, or “womb to tomb and everything in between” as some say. As a family doc, I also work in rural emergency rooms and various hospitals in the area to keep the skills sharp. I have a passion for using lifestyle and food as medicine, and you will probably get tired of hearing me say “life is motion and motion is medicine”. After school, the mountains called us back and we couldn’t say no to living in Erie.
On a side note, I am an avid road cyclist, basketball dunker, and anything-in-the-mountains enthusiast. Although, I have been compared to a baby giraffe by other people watching me ski. Let’s just say it’s a work in progress.
