About

Biography

I’m a pediatric anesthesiologist specializing in neonatal, regional and ultrasound-guided anesthesia. I like to think of pediatric anesthesiology as precision anesthesia. When given the responsibility to protect your child under anesthesia, I make it my sole priority to ensure that your child's safety is the primary goal of everyone involved in their care.

The first heart transplant surgeon, Chris Barnard, inspired me to become an anesthesiologist. I am humbled to be tasked with caring for the most vulnerable, delicate and complex patients in our society.

I am also a researcher who aims to reduce the risks related to undergoing surgery and anesthesia.

When not working, I enjoy building computers, riding motorcycles with my brothers, precision marksmanship and camping. I am honored to be an Eagle Scout as well as a pilot.
