I am a 4th generation Oregonian; born and raised in Portland. During medical school at OHSU, an early exposure to the specialty of Vascular and Interventional Radiology got me hooked. During residency and fellowship, I was mentored by older trail blazers and young clinically savvy teachers who showed me the promising future and impact we could have taking care of patients. I believe I have one of the best jobs in medicine combining minimally invasive technology, imaging, and patient care. I do not sit in a dimly lit room looking at x-rays. I am a consultant who sees his patients and remembers their faces. In this specialty, I am involved in myriad disease processes. As a result, my partners and I treat diseases from head to toe it seems. Vascular disease and cancer care are two central focuses of my practice. I stay up to date by participating in clinical research in order to be an early adopter of what is on the horizon.When not at work, I am fortunate to have a supportive family and enjoy my time with my family. We cook, we travel, and we laugh together.
