I graduated from U.C. Davis in 1993 and started working at Animal Hospital that same year. After 15 years I still can not imagine doing anything else. My passion has always been in general medicine but I have special interests in Diagnostic Ultrasonography, Dentistry, and surgery.
I live with my beautiful wife and two step daughters. Currently we have 5 cats (Oscar, Misty, Soot, Lex, and Lou), and 12 Geckos. Anybody interested in a baby crested gecko? ;)
My favorite hobbies are spending time with my family, mountain biking, camping, tennis, and taking care of all the geckos.
Prior to earning my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Colorado State University in 2002, I earned my undergraduate degree from Montana State University while serving as a police K9 handler. It was when my four-legged partner became ill and required intensive care and surgery that I became interested in veterinary medicine as a career.
After graduating from veterinary school I returned to Montana to work with my mentor where I developed special interests in chronic pain management, general surgery and oncology. Wanting to escape the long, cold winters in the northern Rocky Mountains I moved to California in 2005. I live with my wife, Jill, stepdaughters Tea and Zoe, two dogs, two cats, and two guinea pigs.
I grew up in the San Joaquin Valley in the small town of Escalon. I received his Bachelor of Science in Zoology from Humboldt State University. Following graduation from Humboldt State, I went on to the University of California, Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. I graduated in 2009. I have worked in the East Contra Costa Area since graduation. My areas of interest in veterinary medicine are surgery, especially orthopedic, and emergency medicine.
When not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two daughters as well as our two dachshunds, Darwin and Einstein. As a family we enjoy being outside enjoying the area, visiting Disneyland, and traveling to dance competitions in which my daughters compete.
