“Inspired by the adventures of my youth in the Sierra Nevada, I entered college with the intent to become a wildlife biologist. Upon graduation, I discovered that the employment demand for those with degrees in wildlife biology were slim to none. With few job prospects, and no money, I decided to join the Army and let Uncle Sam help pay my way through medical school. After serving in Germany during Desert Storm, I returned to my roots in South Lake Tahoe. There I joined my father at Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Clinic (of which he was one of the founding partners).

“One of the things that I love most about what I do is being able to work together with my patients to help them overcome their problems and get back to ‘living.’”
