I grew up in Oregon. My training path included studying biochemistry at Pacific Lutheran University and medical school at Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland, Oregon. I completed my family practice residency at Tacoma Family Medicine, which is affiliated with the University of Washington. Along the way I completed medical relief work and study in Taos, New Mexico, Northern India, and Honduras. I practiced for two years in Okanogan County in north central Washington, where I was chief of staff at North Valley Hospital. I am board certified in family medicine and am a fellow of the American Academy of Family Physicians. My wife Liz and I moved to Whatcom County in 1989 to open a private solo practice, which she managed. We helped create Squalicum Family Medicine in 1991 and Family Care Network in 1999. I am the chairman of the contracting committee for Family Care Network. My areas of interest include pediatrics, adult preventative medicine, procedural medicine, and developing technology for medical applications within family medicine. I very much enjoy my work as a family physician, and consider it an honor and a privilege. In my time away from the practice, I am an avid cyclist, skier, runner, and fly fisher. My wife and I raised our three children here in Whatcom County. As a family we enjoy skiing, backpacking, cycle touring, and traveling together. I feel quite fortunate to practice medicine in Bellingham as a member of Family Care Network.
