When people ask me what I do for a living, I always answer, “I’m a husband and father who’s also a doctor” as opposed to “I’m a doctor with a family.” The most important parts of my life will always be my amazing wife and two beautiful sons. I guess my dogs are ok too.
I’m a local guy, been living in the Winter Park/Oviedo area since I was 2. Seminole County raised from Eastbrook Elementary, to Tuskawilla Middle and the Lake Howell class of 2000. I attended undergrad at UCF with a degree in molecular biology and microbiology, and received my medical degree at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, FL. I completed my Family Medicine residency at FL Hospital East Orlando. I also served as the Assistant Medical Director of the Community Care Clinic, a free clinic for the uninsured and impoverished. There I learned how to provide great care for the medically underserved on a shoestring budget.
When I grew up, I traded my Nintendo and Playstation controllers for saws and drills. I love playing around in the garage and have built nearly all the furniture in our house.
I’m beyond excited to have this opportunity to bring health and well-being to my hometown and take care of the people that have become my second family. This town raised me and now it’s time to give back!
