I am originally from Texas but have spent my life traveling the world through the Air Force. My wife is from the Pacific Northwest, and through her I have grown to love the area. We enjoy travel, food, downhill skiing, boating, mountain biking, hiking, and exploring the region with our two young daughters. My interest in medicine comes from a love for science and people.
I am board certified in family medicine, which I enjoy thoroughly. My philosophy involves an integrated, team-based approach. My goal is to provide the best interventions/treatments for my patients based on their individual needs, unique qualities, and direct input.
I thrive in a laid-back, pressure-free atmosphere full of laughter and camaraderie. My family provides all of these to me. Life is short and should be lived fully. We apply this philosophy to all of our adventures together, from simple things, like family hikes, to the most adventurous, like a ski trip we took to Val Gardena, Italy. With the right people and right attitude, life can be completely fulfilling.
