I grew up in Northern Nevada in the foothills of the Sierra mountains. Skiing, biking and swimming were a huge part of my childhood there. College took me to Southern California, where I initially pursued a career in journalism prior to transitioning to medicine. I moved to Portland and went to medical school at OHSU. My emergency medicine training took me back to Southern California for residency, but I feel incredibly lucky to be back in Portland after landing my dream job here with Kaiser Permanente.
It's an honor to work in the Emergency Department. Every day, I have an opportunity to help patients navigate stressful and scary experiences in their lives.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my wife, daughter, and geriatric bulldog. I love running, barbecuing, and eating my way through Portland's awesome restaurants.
