While pursuing an interest in orthopaedics, I found myself being drawn to the field of physical medicine and rehabilitation, particularly to patients with spinal cord injury. During residency, I came to realize that my career path was more than an interest, but a calling to fulfill.

As a rehab doctor, I believe that patients in rehab need to be restored, not just physically but emotionally, socially and in many other areas. I want patients to know that I am their advocate who is committed to helping restore their function so that they can have a good quality of life. They can count on me to exhaust all resources available in an effort to bring about their best achievable function.

I desire to be more than another doctor in a search engine. I'm invested in lives and building people up while their healing takes place. Encouragement, hope and restoration are my guiding principles and I stand on the motto that "life begins after injury."

In my free time, I have a wide variety of interests. I'm an avid singer. I've competed in many karaoke contests and even in the American Idol Experience at Universal Studios. I love to spend time with my wife and four kids. We like to travel and eat good food. I also enjoy playing video games.

I am a member of the following professional associations:
*Association of Academic Physiatrists (AAP)
* Academy of Spinal Cord Injury Professionals (ASCIP)
* American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AAPM&R)
