About

Bio

I trained as an architect before discovering that my passion is helping people more directly. I went to the University of Washington Medical School and then attended the Swedish Medical Center Residency Program for Family Medicine here in Seattle. I live in North Seattle with my family and enjoy carpentry and basketball when I find the time.
