Personal Information

I chose to go into medicine to explore my fascination with the brain and nervous system.
I grew up in Philadelphia and have lived in Vermont California and Washington, DC before coming to the Pacific Northwest. I've spent the past 16 wonderful years here working and raising a family.
The Pacific Northwest is an amazing distillation of natural wonders and people who have overcome adversity to get here and make a better life for themselves. This has produced a can-do, positive and inclusive culture that I'm proud to be part of today.
We love to visit different regions of the Northwest to learn the rich local history and to get a better visual and cultural familiarity with the community of my patients.
My wife, three children, and I love hiking and skiing in the Cascades, sailing and fishing in the San Juans, and travelling to Hood Canal, the Tri-Cities, and Walla Walla to visit friends and taste Washington wines.

Community Involvement

I have served on the board for Open Window School in Bellevue, and participate the physicians advisory board for the Epilepsy Foundation of Washington.
