Where I practice
I grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison for both my undergraduate and medical degrees. I completed my anesthesiology residency in Charlottesville at the University of Virginia following internship at Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. I worked nine years in private practice in Reno, Nevada, with a brief stint in Maine before joining Kaiser Permanente in Denver. My wife and I have enjoyed living in Boulder where access to outdoor activities and numerous quality eateries is quick and easy. We continue to be enthusiastic Badger fans and enjoy a constant assortment of dogs in our household as Puppy Raisers for Guide Dogs for the Blind.
About my practice
Anesthesiology allows me to combine interests I have in physiology, anatomy, pharmacology, and technology to take great care of my patients. I listen and seek to understand my patients' questions and concerns so that we can make a treatment plan that meets their needs. I’m particularly interested in regional anesthesia techniques and the application of technology to the practice of medicine. As a department technical lead, I enjoy helping my colleagues to most efficiently use the technological tools we have at our disposal.
How I thrive
I am at my best when I’m able to incorporate outdoor activities into my routine. I’m an avid cyclist (both road and mountain) and have cycled across the continent. I enjoy alpine skiing in the winter and when the snow melts it’s time to head out on the rivers in a whitewater kayak. My wife and I enjoy camping with our dogs, especially in the mountains to enjoy cooler summer temperatures.
