During medical school, I had the opportunity to work overseas in Madagascar and Papua New Guinea, working with surgeons in extreme situation. This sparked my desire to pursue surgery.
Upon completing residency, my interest in minimally invasive surgery led me to Connecticut, where I finished an additional year of fellowship in Advanced Laparoendoscopic/Bariatric Surgery.
I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2005.
Growing up in “Cereal City,” also known as Battle Creek, and attending college there, I consider myself a “Michigander.” After enduring harsh winters of the northeast US, we began looking for an area that had no snow AND no mosquitoes per my wife’s request. The search directed us to the beautiful Bay Area. I spend my leisure time with my wife and two children. I also enjoy the outdoors, especially downhill skiing.
