    Biography

    I'm one of 12 children and grew up in Michigan, then moved to Minnesota to do my orthopedic residency at the University of Minnesota where we had training in a wide range of orthopedic problems. I then stayed for a year of subspecialty fellowship training in hand and upper extremity surgery.

    Outside of orthopedics I enjoy spending most of my time with my wife Katie and our three children Daniel, Evie, Naomi. I was involved in the sport of wrestling for many years and currently help coach kids including my son.
