I was born in Rome, Georgia, and attended Georgia Institute of Technology, where I earned my bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering. I went on to medical school at Medical College of Georgia and then moved to Texas. I spent the next 13 years moving to various military bases. I completed five years of urology training at Brooke Army Medical Center and the University of Texas, San Antonio. In 2008, I served in Iraq, where I provided trauma, reconstructive and general urology services to deployed U.S. soldiers and the local population. I have also treated patients in Honduras through U.S. Army humanitarian missions. My wife and I chose to move to Colorado in 2009 after finishing my military service, and I have been practicing urology with Kaiser Permanente since then. We were drawn to the natural beauty and outdoor activities Colorado has to offer. I have three children in their pre-teen and teen years.
I was drawn to urology for the same reasons I was interested in engineering – I love to see how things work. The human body is the most complex and fascinating object that I have ever come across. I feel it is a great responsibility and privilege that patients allow me to “fix” them when appropriate. I look forward to seeing my patients and work with you to make treatment plans that meet your needs and lifestyle. Although I treat most urologic conditions, my special interests include male and female incontinence, urethral stricture disease and repair, male prosthetics, salvage cryotherapy, and management of bladder and kidney cancer.
When not at work, I love hanging out with my family, traveling, camping and backpacking. We are members at Westminster United Methodist Church. My hobbies include fishing, hunting, martial arts and building hi-fi electron tube audio equipment which I use to enjoy music at its best.
