Originally from upstate New York, I completed undergraduate and medical studies at Georgetown University. I then did residency, fellowship, and staff work in the US Army, and was on active and reserve duty for about 15 years. My family then moved to the Northwest in 1998. Now here for 14 years, we have fairly deep roots in our wonderful local community. My wife, 2 boys , and I enjoy everything the northwest has to offer, especially our time in the San Juan islands.
