About me

I grew up in the Washington DC area, attended the University of Virginia for my undergraduate studies and George Washington University School of Medicine. I received a medical school Air Force full scholarship and spent seven years in the Air Force as a Flight Surgeon and Emergency Medicine Physician. After the Air Force, I attended anesthesiology residency at the University of California, Davis (UC Davis, graduating in 2001) and upon graduation worked in a very busy private practice in Las Vegas, Nevada for six years. I joined Kaiser Permanente Northwest because of its excellent reputation. I also wanted a more balanced work and lifestyle. I wanted increased medical challenges thus better utilizing my clinical skills, in a more integrated system, yet be more rested and have more predictable family time. I have never worked in a better system then Kaiser Permanente Northwest. I have been married for 12 years to a wonderful nurse and mother and we have three children, two boys and one girl. I pursued a medical career after discovering my love for biology and always wanting to work closely with people. I confirmed this decision after volunteering in hospitals, a nursing home, burn unit, externing with a surgeon and working for a year in a research lab. I specifically chose anesthesiology because I love the clinical application of physiology and pharmacology (my two favorite subjects) and the numerous procedures you get to perform in this field.

About my practice

I work in a large anesthesia group consisting of anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists. Some days I supervise three rooms with nurse anesthetists and other days I do my own cases. Combining supervision and doing my own cases maximizes skills, crisis management and practice satisfaction. In addition to general anesthesia I do neuroanesthesia, thoracic, vascular, OB/GYN, bariatric and complex head and neck anesthesia. I am comfortable performing regional anesthetic techniques for primary anesthesia and post operative pain management. In addition to providing vapor anesthesia, I regularly place arterial and central lines, epidurals, spinals and regional blocks. I also have placed a lot of double lumen endotracheal tubes for lung isolation. Finally, I just finished taking my 10 year written board recertification, passing and scoring in the 97th percentile.

How I thrive

As stated above, I thrive in a well balanced practice. I work hard but have plenty of time off for family, rest and hobbies. I love that we have an integrated, evidence based, safe system with friendly and outstanding surgeons. Our anesthesia group is well staffed and well supported by Kaiser Permanente leadership. I feel that the combination of supervision and doing my own cases keeps my skills maximized but also prevents burn out and fatigue. When a nurse anesthetist needs my assistance I am rested, thinking clearly and have the skills to be helpful. I believe anesthesiologist morale is excellent judging by the very low turnover within our group. My hobbies include cheering my kids in their athletic, scouting, piano and singing activities, spending time with wife, skiing, hiking, gym time and travel in general. I hope to pick up golf again soon! I volunteer in the Union Gospel Mission, feeding the homeless. My family and I attend church regularly. I hope to one day resume medical missions once our children are a little older.
