I grew up in Glendora, CA where I worked at a small animal hospital in Covina over the summers while going to UCSD for a bachelor degree in general biology. While working with Dr. Gerry I fell in love with veterinary medicine and became a member of the first class to receive a Veterinary degree from Western University of Health Sciences.

During my time as a veterinary student, I was introduced to Dr. Carpenter who became my mentor. I was happy to take a position at Newport Harbor Animal Hospital in 2007 and have never looked back. Newport Harbor Animal Hospital has been a great home for me. I enjoy working with an excellent staff and continue to develop my interest in cardiology.

In carrying on the mentoring tradition, I feel strongly about building a strong next generation of veterinarians. To this end, Newport Harbor Animal Hospital is a place where veterinary students from Western University come to learn veterinary medicine. I was proud to accept the award for 'Preceptor of the Year' in 2018.

I was thrilled to take over the business with Dr. Wind in 2016 and carry on the extraordinary care that Newport Harbor provides to our clients and community - and has since 1947!

When I get a chance, I enjoy fly fishing with my family and taking my daughter on hikes with my wife. My three dogs also keep me on my toes! Often, on my outdoor excursions I will take some time to take photographs of nature. Having played soccer in college, and multiple sports growing up, I am a big sports fan and enjoy watching sports.
