Life & Hobbies
I love outdoor activities, whether it is climbing or mountain biking around the Denver area. In the winter, I'm always chasing the best conditions for skiing or snowboarding in the backcountry.
"I enjoy meeting new people and learning more about them. It is very satisfying to find out what problems a patient may have and fix them. Whether it is simply finding cavities, alleviating pain or helping with someone’s appearance it is great that my job provides value and benefits for whoever I am able to meet and take care of."
Provide the best service for the patient possible, taking in to account their particular wants and needs. I want to give my patients service that I would want to receive or that I would give to my own family member. I also strive to make every patient comfortable in what can be a stressful situation for some.

Life & Hobbies
I enjoy the outdoors in beautiful Colorado including golf, mountain biking, hiking, skiing etc. I also enjoy reading a good book and cultural events in Denver. I always like to travel and see new places though it is great to come back home to Colorado. I was raised in Kansas which is a great place to grow up but eventually decided to live near the mountains. I have one son who lives in Oregon and flies helicopters.
