I was born and raised in Blooming Prairie, MN and after finishing high school, I traveled to Southern California where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology at Westmont College. I enjoyed a short career of teaching junior high and high school before attending medical school at St. Georges University in Grenada. I was then accepted to and completed an Internal Medicine residency at Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, Ca.
I enjoy outdoor activities such as running, hiking and skiing. My wife and I have two beautiful babies, with whom I love spending my time.
