I enjoy providing whole-family care, from acute and chronic disease management (including addiction) to preventative care. I value evidence-based and integrative approaches to medicine. Above all, I appreciate the chance to come to know my patients and their families.

I enjoy time spent with family, outdoor activities (backpacking, cycling, gardening), various household projects, and sci-fi of all kinds.
