Interests: I am a Chicago sports fan at heart, so without a doubt I keep track of the Chicago Cubs, Bulls, and the Bears. I enjoy playing basketball and enjoy the task of attempting to play golf. I love going through life with my wife and family.  I also consider a privilege to be able to use my profession in different contexts around the world through being involved in medical missions.

Personal quote: “As a physical therapist I take great pride in assisting people return to the capabilities that they once had. At the Mettler Center, I am a part of a dedicated team of therapists that have the compassion, care, and knowledge to work towards the same goal.”
