About me

I grew up on the California coast and came to Denver in 2006. My wife, young daughter and I love living in Denver. It’s a multicultural city with great access to the performing arts, interesting neighborhoods, rivers, parks, bike paths, fantastic green chile, and of course – the mountains! Practicing palliative medicine has been my passion from the earliest days of my medical training. As I drove across the country from California to New York to start medical school, I read a book about being with and caring for folks who were living with potentially life-limiting illnesses. The book focused on the psychologic, emotional and spiritual care that can best support people during this time. It spoke deeply to me – I had lost my right eye playing soccer for UCLA as an undergraduate and this loss propelled me into similar realms of grief, loss, debility, lack of control and existential distress that are often experienced by people who are dealing with a serious illness. By the time I completed medical school, the new specialty of palliative medicine had just come into being and becoming a part of it was exactly where I knew I was supposed to be. I wound up completing fellowship training in palliative medicine and have worked as a palliative care physician for my entire career.

About my practice

I couldn’t be more thankful for the opportunity to support patients and their loved ones as they make their way through the twists and turns of this part of their life story. As I see it, we are all on this very human journey together, walking side by side, one breath at a time. I look forward to seeing my patients and enjoy learning about them. I work with my patients to make treatment plans that meet their needs, and coordinate their care with our specialists, pharmacists and others.

How I thrive

My family can be found outside hiking, riding our bikes to nearby restaurants and neighborhood festivals, sweating at our CrossFit gym, paddleboarding on nearby lakes, walking our Frenchie named Frida Kahlo, and sitting by the fire in the winter making art and learning how to knit. I also attend one to two meditation retreats each year. Caring for mind, body and spirit is very important to me, both for myself and for my patients.
