I chose surgery because of the hands-on approach to surgical problems. I like the combination of technical skill and medical knowledge that treatment of surgical disease requires. I enjoy all aspects of general surgery from initial consultation to post-operative follow-up. I like to focus on patient education and expectations throughout the surgical experience. I have an interest in laparoscopy and hernia surgery as well as trauma surgery.  The trauma surgery interest stems from being in the U. S Army for 3 years and the Minnesota Army National Guard for over 20 years with multiple Mid-east tours.  When not at work, I enjoy running, reading, rugby, and spending time with my family, which includes our Beagles.
