Personal Bio & Interests

I am a veteran of the first Gulf War. I am a long time resident of Utah and love living here. My wife and I have two children who love the outdoors spending our winters skiing and summers mountain biking and other outdoor activities. I completed my general surgery and vascular surgery training in Portland, Oregon. I love my work and look forward to helping my patients obtain the best results possible for their medical condition and to live the healthiest lives possible.
