About me
I am an adult and fellowship trained pediatric anesthesiologist. While I enjoy caring for individuals of all ages, I find the challenges of helping younger patients and their families through a surgical experience very rewarding.

After growing up in Northern Maine and receiving my education on the East Coast from New England to Washington DC, my wife and I decided to sample the Northwest. Thirty years later we are still enjoying the experience. The proximity of the mountains for hiking and skiing, the water for kayaking and beach walks, the city for its good eats and the arts is hard to match anywhere else. We found Seattle a wonderful place to raise our two children. I also enjoy flying small airplanes, a decent cup of coffee and a good book.
