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, football player and motocross racer.
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 Boulder Cycle Sport cycling team and compete in mountain biking and cyclocross events. I finished the Leadville Trail MTB 100 in 2011, 2015, 2017, and 2018.
