I was born in St. Louis, but have lived in every region of the country. Having spent most of my childhood in Alaska, I love the Pacific Northwest, and decided to return here after several years in Savannah, Georgia. I have a degree in Electrical Engineering from Rutgers University, and worked for eight years as an engineer before returning to school to pursue Optometry. My background in engineering allowed me to transition easily to Optometry, which I truly enjoy as a career. My time as an Army optometrist was also a very valuable time in my career, as it allowed me to expand my scope of practice, and bring that training to Kaiser Permanente.
About my practice
I enjoy providing care to all ages and populations, including general eye exams, contact lenses, and ocular disease management. I treat my patients exactly how I wish to be treated: with respect, kindness, and the best service I can provide.
How I thrive
Physical fitness is very important to me. Whether it's training for a triathlon, or watching the kids so my wife can train for a marathon, I certainly believe staying active is the key to thriving physically and mentally. I also love spending time with my family. Biking, hiking, and skiing are just a few of the activities we enjoy.
