Bio

Q: What led you to work in orthopedics?

Answer: I'm a Maryland native, but attended James Madison University in Virginia for my undergraduate studies before attending King's College in Wilkes-Barre for my master's degree. I spent nine years working in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area before coming to Summit Health.

I've been involved in sports all my life, so I developed an interest and first-hand knowledge of orthopedic injuries and management of those injuries throughout the years.

Q: What drew you to begin practicing in the Franklin County area?

Answer:  Why not Pennsylvania? My wife is from upstate New York and I'm from Maryland, but we were looking for a place that offered a slower, more fulfilling life. Franklin County gave us that while also offering the opportunity for me to work at a progressive, expanding orthopedic group.

Q: What would you say is a common misconception about orthopedics?

Answer:  A lot of people think of orthopedics as a solution to a problem, but it's a broad spectrum of everything. We are here to help you heal, but also we give direction to help prevent injuries before they happen.

Q: What are you most looking forward to about working in Franklin County?

Answer: I love all operative and non-operative treatment, so I'm looking forward to working with patients.

Q: What hobbies or interests do you enjoy outside of your career?

Answer: I've been a rugby player for 16 years and I've served as team medic for most of those years.
