I am a native of Las Vegas, Nevada. I graduated from Northern Arizona University and later received a Master of Physical Therapy degree from NAU in 1992. I met my wife Laura in PT school and after spending 8 years in the Seattle region advancing our professional careers, we moved to Pullman in 2000 to raise our two sons, Ryan and Joey. I became co-owner of ProFormance Physical Therapy with my wife in 2005. I enjoy spending time with my family, taking long bike rides, and working on projects around our house.
My areas of interest are geriatrics, orthopedics, vestibular rehabilitation, and biomechanical bike fitting. I teach a strength and balance fitness class for adults aged 65 and over called “Stay Active & Independent for Life”. I also teach total hip and total knee replacement pre-operative classes to educate and train patients about the surgery and post-operative recovery. My goal, especially for my elderly patients, is to restore their independence and safety at home and in the community as fully as possible.
