I spent my childhood moving around the country, living in places ranging from Alaska to San Diego to Oklahoma and many places in between. I went to college at Kansas State University, where I earned a degrees in Biochemistry, Life Science and Chemistry. I then went to the University of Kansas School of Medicine, and I did my clinical training in Wichita. My wife Barbara and I are incredibly excited to spend three years in Washington, and plan to take advantage of the beautiful landscapes with our dog, Lola.
After graduation from residency, I returned to Kansas City to begin my family medicine practice.
Outside of medicine, I enjoy reading, some video games, watching soccer and my newest hobby, running. I competed in my first 10K in June 2011, and hope to continue to expand the number of races under my belt.
