I was born and raised in rural South Dakota on a bison ranch, but traveled further west for education and training. I feel very fortunate to return to Colorado to live and practice surrounded by the beautiful outdoors. I am particularly interested in practicing evidence-based medicine to improve care and add value to the health of my patients. My prior research was focused on using teams to improve patient survival in cancer, and I hope to bring that knowledge to my patients.
I feel very honored to be able to care for patients in hematology and oncology. Technology in the treatment of cancer is rapidly evolving and giving us more hope each day. I believe that communication with patients is paramount to valuable care. I want to make sure treatment goals and plans are clear and meet your needs. I am a strong advocate for high-quality care for all patients and I rely on trusted research to ensure that I practice evidence-based medicine when possible.
I thrive most by the amazing support of my wife, daughter and yellow Lab. I enjoy frequent exercise and excursions to the outdoors through backcountry skiing, mountain biking, hiking and camping. Woodworking and playing the banjo help me thrive when I’m not able to explore the outdoors.
