I practice family medicine because I enjoy seeing patients from all walks of life. My philosophy on health is to make the patient part of the solution to anything that ails them. Patients who are centered in their own healthcare can make informed choices. I believe that when patients feel that they have the information they need to understand their options, they are better able to overcome medical challenges and continue with their normal daily life. I want our patients to consider Sound Family Medicine as part of their team and know they have people working on their side to keep them and their family healthy.

My journey into medicine came unexpectedly to me. I had been in the military as an Infantryman with 2nd Ranger Battalion when I was involved in some casualty situations in Afghanistan. My lack of training in that situation pushed me to seek more knowledge in the medical field. I applied and was accepted to the University of Nebraska Interservice Physician Assistant Program in 2007. Upon graduation, I was awarded a Master’s Degree in Physician Assistant studies. In 2017, after 21 years of military service and 6 combat deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan, I retired and wanted to be back home in Washington State.

My wife and I have been married for 20 years and have 4 children. We grew up in Lakewood/Tacoma and wanted to raise our kids in a quiet, tight-knit community. We are avid movie watchers and love cooking together as a family. Our family loves all things that start with Disney (ending with Disney is ok too). Football is our favorite sport – as long as we are cheering for the Kansas City Chiefs or WSU Cougars. We are also very passionate about supporting children’s charities such as The Wishing Well, No Kid Hungry Foundation and local school classrooms and libraries.
