About Me

Welcome to my Web page. I am pleased to have the opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. I feel it is very important for you to get to know your physician, and it is my hope that this Web page will help you get to know me.


I was born and raised in a small town in western Colorado. My undergraduate degree was earned at the University of Colorado. I moved to Southern California to attend medical school and also complete my residency. Being from Colorado, I enjoy mountain activities such as skiing and camping. I also enjoy fishing, especially the deep-sea variety of the sport.

About my practice

As a general surgeon, I participate in the care of a wide variety of medical problems, from the benign to malignant. My field gives me opportunities to help people in a variety of ways.

How I thrive

I feel that in order to live well we must have balance in our lives-balance between our professional and personal lives, work and play. It is important to work hard and also play hard.
