About

Bio

Board certified in Emergency Medicine. After 18 years practicing in busy ER's I have an unassailable amount of appreciation for preventing conditions and optimizing health beginning with myself and my family. I am very happily married with a beautiful wife, five awesome children and live in the suburbs of Minneapolis. I am consumed by my passion for helping people optimize their health. I live and eat Paleo/Primal, am inspired by nutrition, probiotics, the human microbiome, High Intensity Interval Training, Telomeres and life longevity, weight management, natural footwear, sleep and stress management. I have an interest in ancestral health, traditional foods, Quantified Self/bio-hacking, and telemedicine. Prior to medicine I was in police work and practiced law as a Criminal Prosecutor

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
