Office: (954) 764-8033


    Hello to those viewing and thank you for taking the time to look over my information. I am originally from a small Midwestern town where I was raised learning the value of kindness and hard work. I believe my demeanor, integrity, and work ethic reflect my upbringing and I take pride in this. I have a very broad range of passions and interests, and I feel very fortunate to combine several of these working in the meticulous field of upper extremity surgery.  I have recently finished my fellowship training at the University of Mississippi Medical Center and I am currently board eligible, having successfully completed two of three certification stages.  I plan to focus my efforts hereafter on developing a successful practice where I have the opportunity to serve the needs of my new community.  I appreciate the time you've given me and I always welcome any contact and without hesitation.

    I maintain a very active lifestyle with interest in a variety of activities such as weight lifting, mountain biking, and running, as well as playing various sports on the side.  I am also very interested in all things internal combustion and love to modify my vehicles and motorcycles, participate in local track-days and other spirited-driving events, and schedule dedicated leisure road trips as often as my schedule will allow.  I enjoy playing the guitar, though my skills are mediocre, and tinkering around with my computers as funds allow.  I have a passion for finance and investing, and one day hope to own businesses both within and outside of the medical field.
