After graduating Bend High in 1997, I earned a Bachelor of Arts in American Studies from the University of Southern California. Ten years later, I pivoted to become a paramedic and, in 2019, a registered nurse. I now have the privilege of supporting front-line caregivers as the Supervisor of Clinical Operations at St. Charles Family Care and Immediate Care in La Pine.

Beyond my paid work as a healthcare clinician and administrator, I am an active volunteer. I serve on several boards and committees, including:

I also offer community classes and trainings on subjects ranging from CPR to carseat safety.

My wife, Amy, is a Family Nurse Practitioner at St. Charles Family Care in Redmond and she serves on the Bend-La Pine School Board. We have two kids and a pack of dogs.
