I graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Medicine in 2000. I received my residency training in Family Medicine and I was chief resident at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. In 2003, my wife and I moved to Portland, Oregon and I began my own solo practice in the model of a “micropractice”. Continuity of care, taking care of people of all ages, preventative medicine, and practical medicine was and still is the foundation of my practice philosophy. I created my micro-practice so that I could spend more time with my patients, providing patient education and awareness, and helping through the medical decision making process when needed. I ran my own micro-practice, being on call for myself 24/7, for nearly 10 years.  I also spent 2 years working for a Direct Primary Care practice in Vancouver, Washington.

For 5 years while I was managing my micro-practice, I was also the medical director for the Children's Center of Clackamas County, whose mission is to assess and support children who may be victims of abuse or neglect and coordinate services to help them. During my medical school and residency training, I did additional clinical work to performing child abuse evaluations and my experience during that time informed my work at the Children's Center. I was also the board chair for a local children's relief nursery in Gladstone, Oregon to assist at-risk families and children to prevent foster care placement and child abuse called Family Stepping Stones (which is now a part of Lifeworks, NW).
I am married with 2 kids and I live in Southeast Portland. I love the atmosphere that the Pacific Northwest offers for me and my family. I play the violin and guitar, mixing and recording music, working with computers, house renovation projects, cooking and using my grill, hiking, and traveling.  During my time running my micropractice, I also developed and created an open-source licensed electronic health record system that is now a central component of a revolutionary patient centered longitudinal health record system. As a result of work, I have an international following from a variety of specialties that have recognized my work in the field of health informatics and recognizing the importance of an intuitive physician user interface experience to improve the quality of data input and patient safety.
A couple of fun facts: I played lead electric guitar, electric violin, and the occasional lead vocals in my medical school rock band and I was cast as an extra in the hit NBC show Grimm, where I played a detective.
