Everyone, at some point in their life, will suffer from pain. It may be mild but very disruptive, interfering with every aspect of their life. Activities that were once simple and achieved with little effort now seem impossible to perform. Whatever the case, I am confident that I can help. I believe in solving your problem quickly and giving you the tools to prevent the condition from reoccurring in the future. I help my patients, from children to adults, become free from pain and empower them with the tools to help themselves remain pain-free.

Not every patient is the same so not every approach to treatment is the same. I have been trained in various techniques to assist in relieving your pain, helping you recognize the triggers for your pain, and showing you how to avoid similar flare-ups in the future.

My educational background includes a B.S. in Biology from Arizona State University, and I received my Doctorate in Chiropractic from West States Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon. I have worked with the Benson High School Football Team, Grant High School Wrestling Team, and consulted for the Vancouver rodeo. I was the set chiropractor for the TNT television show “Leverage” and NBC’s “Grimm”. I am currently the chiropractor for the Professional Women’s football team, “The Portland Fighting Shockwave”.

I grew up in Tigard, Oregon where I enjoyed participating in football, track, and wrestling. I also enjoy running and have participated in Hood to Coast since 2001. I enjoy everything the Pacific Northwest has to offer. In my free time, you may find me on hikes, camping, or appreciating all the great weather the Oregon beaches offer with my family: my wife who I met in high school, and our three children ranging from ages 8 to 18.
