A CU Medicine provider.
I strive to provide the best and most up to date care for my young athletes. I love their passion and motivation for their individual sports. I also find it easy to relate to my patients being a former wrestler and football player.
I enjoy ski mountaineering, rock and ice climbing, as well as skiing and biking with my wife and three kids. I was able to obtain one of my lifelong goals of summiting Denali in 2012. I race for the Boulder Cycle Sport team and compete in mountain biking and cyclocross events.
