I was born and raised in Southern California and obtained a B.S. in psychobiology at the University of Southern California prior to attending medical school at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, PA. My neurosurgical residency training occurred at the University of California, Irvine Medical Center (UCIMC) and was completed in 1990. I completed a spine fellowship at the Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix, AZ in 1991. I returned to UCIMC as an Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Neurological Surgery joined my chairman in private practice in Seattle in 1993. From 1999-2005 I returned to academic neurosurgery in Syracuse, NY and from 2005-2011 was at the University of Utah. I currently see patients through the Salt Lake Center for Spine & Peripheral Nerve Surgery
