About me
I am a board-certified anesthesiologist with a particular interest in regional anesthesia and orthopedic surgery.  I am the current Chief of Anesthesia at the Swedish Orthopedic Institute.  I also practice anesthesia for general surgery, ENT, urology, OB/GYN, plastics, and other specialties.  I love my profession and the people with whom I work!  

Outside of work, I love spending time with my two daughters.  I enjoy travelling, snow skiing, and running.

Areas of clinical interest
Ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia, peripheral nerve blocks and catheters for post-operative pain control, research in regional anesthesia.
