About Me:

  • I was born and raised in Utah and grew up in Bountiful.  I come from a big family and family is very important to me.  I have a beautiful wife with 4 children and one on the way.
  • I love to be outdoors and active.  My greatest outdoor love is fishing and I get out as often as I can, time permitting.  
  • I love working with the foot and ankle.  It can be a very challenging field but is extremely rewarding to see resolution of pain and an increase in activity as well as quality of life in my patients.
