I was raised in Utah, although I traveled to Wisconsin for medical school and to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for residency training in emergency medicine, of which I am board certified. I am currently the medical director of the emergency department at Park City Medical Center where I often manage the care of acutely injured and ill patients from around the world. I also perform medical director duties for Respiratory Therapy and Employee Health at this same hospital. I am directing the medical protocols and training of Wasatch County EMS in addition to my hospital based duties. I chair the State of Utah’s EMS Board, which creates rules and regulations for the Health Department to enforce safe patient practices in all emergency medical service agencies across the state. I often lecture medical students, resident physicians, medical assistants and general public on Healthy Lifestyles from the perspective of an ER doctor. I live locally with my wife and 5 children. The mountains of this beautiful part of the country provide countless opportunities for daily energizing adventures. I regularly mountain bike, snowboard, trail run or hike (depending on the season) in this amazing natural playground.
