Clinical Interests
My interests include Regional Anesthesia/Analgesia, Acute Pain Management, Anesthesia for liver and kidney transplant for pediatric patients

Care Philosophy
Although my primary responsibility is the safe intra-operative care of a child, I understand that life-events such as surgery and anesthesia can affect an entire family. Each day I aim to put families at ease with the assurance that the care your child will receive that day is the the best anyone can offer.

Personal Interests
In my spare time, I enjoy such things as cycling, skiing, scuba diving, flyfishing, photography, and woodworking. I enjoy spectator sports including Colorado Avalanche Hockey, Colorado Buffalo and Denver Bronco Football, and Colorado Rockies Baseball.
