I graduated cum laude from Wabash College in 1991, with a B.A. in Biology and then earned my M.D. from Indiana University in 1997. I completed my residency at Bethesda Hospital in Cincinnati, and after completing my residency, spent six years in the United States Air Force. I have been in private practice since 2007 and one of my greatest interests in practice is promoting, caring for, and assisting women with having successful VBAC's. I also enjoy the fulfillment that comes with being able to provide personalized, family-centered care, even through pregnancy and births that require a higher level of medical intervention. I enjoy spending time with my beautiful wife and children, watching food network for ideas and inspiration, and cooking. Whenever I can find the time, I also love photographing our beautiful Alaskan surroundings.
