Clinical Interests
After completing fellowship here at the University of Colorado I was privileged to join an exceptional team of doctors and nurses dedicated to the care of patients with pulmonary vascular disease. I divide my time between the out-patient clinic, in-patient wards, the cardiac catheterization laboratory and the medical intensive care unit. I also have an active research laboratory focused on developing better means of diagnosing and treating patients with pulmonary hypertension. I am involved in a number of clinical trials investigating novel therapeutic agents in the treatment of PAH and pulmonary embolism.

Care Philosophy
To offer the best possible treatment and support to our patients .

Personal Interests
Outside of the hospital, I enjoy spending time with my family exploring this beautiful state in which we live.
