About Me
I am an anesthesiologist and critical care specialist who focuses primarily on taking care of cardiac and neurosurgical patients as well as general medical and surgical ICU patients. My practice allows me to take care of patients in both the peri-operative setting as well as the more extended post-operative setting.  I feel that this continuity of care improves my ability to provide well-rounded care that keeps keeps my patients safe and hopefully helps them get home from the hospital more quickly.  I enjoy having the opportunity to meet so many people from so many walks of life, and I am very honored to take care of them during their hospital stay.  

I grew up in Illinois and trained at Loma Linda University in Southern California.  I enjoy skiing, hiking, camping, and hanging out with my spouse and new child.

Areas of Clinical Interest
I am working to develop a standardized template for anesthesia care for several cancer surgeries.
