How did you fall in love with your field?
After my first exposure to spine surgery as a medical student I was enthralled by the breadth of pathology and the wide range in patient population. I enjoy the challenge of going through a patient's history, examination, and imaging findings to determine the best treatment plan, whether that is operative or nonoperative management. In the end, it is a patient population that I enjoy building relationships with while working towards a goal of improving their quality of life.\
Three things people may not know about you:

- Enjoy playing and writing music
- I met my wife while attending UNK. We have two children, a 5 year-old daughter who just started kindergarten and the above mentioned 3 year-old Toy Story fan.
