I am a Board Certified specialist in Emergency Medicine.

It wasn't until I turned 25 while sailing across the Atlantic Ocean on a 40' sailboat that I decided to go into medicine. Having already completed my undergraduate degree in biology at UC San Diego, I returned to the U.S. and began working as an EMT with an ambulance crew before entering medical school at the University of Illinois. Although I considered a career in Obstetrics/Gynecology, I chose Emergency Medicine because of the wide breadth of patients and medical problems confronted on a daily basis in the Emergency Department. I enjoy the challenge and the opportunity to intervene when it matters most. I completed my specialty training at UC Davis in Sacramento in July 1998 and came directly to Kaiser Permanente Santa Rosa to join the staff here. I choose Kaiser Permanente because of the integrated health care program and the opportunity to practice medicine under the direction of physicians rather than an insurance company.

While I very much enjoy the practice of clinical medicine, I have also had multiple opportunities to participate in administrative and community projects. I served as Chief of the Kaiser Permanente Santa Rosa ED from 2001 until 2011 and have been Assistant Physician-in-Chief for Hospital Operations since 2011. I am on the American Red Cross Board of Directors, serve as Board Chair for the Ceres Project, and am also the medical director for the Jewish Community Free Clinic in Santa Rosa. I have an interest in Disaster and Rescue medicine and in 2005 I had the opportunity to go to Sri Lanka to assist with relief efforts following the Tsunami Disaster, Baton Rouge, Louisiana following Hurricane Katrina, Haiti following the earthquake, and the Philippines after typhoon Haiyan.

Although I was born in New York City, I grew up in Marin County, California, and I have lived in many places across the country - New York, Vermont, Massachusetts, Illinois, Southern California, and Northern California. In 2006 we lived and worked for 6 month in New Zealand. My wife, Claire, is from England, but grew up in Northern California, and all her family is nearby. While I always have a bit of wanderlust, she feels quite tied to California. She told me we could live anywhere I want, so long as it was within 100 miles of San Francisco, so we're pretty well settled in Santa Rosa, even if we do quite a bit of exploring!

Outside of work I enjoy travel, playing golf and going to SF Giants games, Although I don't get to train much anymore I used to enjoy triathlon racing. In 2007 I competed in and finished my first Ironman Triathlon in Coeur D'Alene Idaho and completed a 2nd in May of 2010.
