I grew up in Bend, OR with my mom and dad and three older sisters. After high school I moved to San Diego, CA to attend Point Loma Nazarene University where I graduated in 2002 with a BA in Biology. I attended dental school at Loma Linda University and completed my residency in pediatric dentistry through Lutheran Medical Center at St. Joseph Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island. My wife, Melissa, and I have three little boys and are excited to be in Bakersfield. I enjoy running, playing tennis, basketball, golf, fishing and spending time with friends and family. I love the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Los Angeles Lakers and eating at Moo Creamery.
