Kaiser Permanente brought me and my family to the Portland area in 2005 and we absolutely love the Pacific Northwest. We are originally from Southern California and have been migrating north for the past 15 years. I received my undergraduate degree in physiology at UC Davis, which is where I met my wife, who is an optometrist at the VA Medical Center here in Portland. I attended medical school at Western University of Health Sciences and finally residency in anesthesiology at UC Davis. We have a son, who is our constant source of joy, and a cat named Ponyo.
About my practice
I am a general anesthesiologist that gravitates towards thoracic surgery and am working hard to develop my ultrasound-guided regional anesthetic techniques.
How I thrive
In my free time I am a father and husband first, and a 'weekend warrior' bike racer and skier second.
