I was raised in Arkansas and Texas and have wanted to be a physician since I was in the third grade. I attended the University of Texas at Austin for my undergraduate degree, followed by Midwestern University, Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine, for medical school. Family Medicine allows me to make and build relationships with my patients and their families, and I decided early on it was the best fit for me. I completed my family medicine residency in Corvallis, Oregon.
About my practice
My goal as a physician is to provide well-rounded care to my patients to include both body and mind. I also utilize osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) as necessary to help with aches and pains. It is important for me to try to understand each patient as a person, including their social situation, which plays a big factor in their health.
How I thrive
I have a very active life outside of medicine including hiking, camping, and spending quality time with my wife and two children. I also have a passion for retro video game collecting and enjoy video game playing in general.
