About Me
The field of anesthesiology has allowed me to harness my interests in physiology and pharmacology to both safely and comfortably guide my patients through their day of surgery. Every day is a pleasure because it brings another opportunity to meet new people and learn about many different walks of life. Please feel open to ask me anything you would like about your anesthetic plan when we meet, as it is always my goal to make sure that we can agree on a plan that will keep you safe and comfortable through your day of surgery.


Personal Interests
In my free time, you will find me enjoying the Pacific Northwest through snowboarding, playing golf, or hiking. I also enjoy travelling, and I would love to hear about your favorite travel memory when I have a chance to meet you.


Areas of Clinical Interests
My clinical interests relate to finding ways to make our practice of anesthesiology and perioperative medicine safer through the use of innovative monitoring technologies and approaches to care that allow for early intervention to minimize risk.
