“Thank you for taking time to review my bio. I’ve enjoyed living in Tennessee for the past 10 years. After high school I worked as a carpenter, truck driver, heavy equipment operator, mason and auto parts clerk.

I found my calling while working night shift in a local hospital emergency room and as a paramedic. I became an orthopedic surgeon because I wanted to combine my passion for creating and fixing broken things with my love for caring for others.

I love to spend time with my four children and grandchildren. Family has always been most important to me. I treat every patient the way I would treat my own family members. I also love to ride motorcycles and play the drums in a local rock band. I am an avid hunter as well. I am also an accomplished multiengine IFR pilot.

I look forward to caring for you and your family as if you were my own!”
