Welcome to our website. I have practiced in our community for twenty years. My practice today is just as exciting as it was when I first began. I work with an extremely talented group of people that embody the meaning of love, care and concern for each of the patients they treat. In my spare time I am with my wife and three children, we do everything together. We love the park, baseball, grilling and movie night! Please feel free to call on me if you ever have a question.

I am blessed and excited to be a chiropractor here at Spine and Joint Associates. I have had the honor to treat thousands of patients throughout my 10 year career. I have worked in multiple states and even as far as Lima, Peru as a chiropractor treating a wide array of conditions. I have a goal for each of my patients, which is the same goal I hold for myself, which is to move and feel as good as we possibly can, for as long as we can. When I am not spending time with my patients, I love to be with family and our Boston Terrier, Duncan. If I’m not there, then there is a high probability you could find me on a Lake Michigan beach playing 2 on 2 sand volleyball. I also enjoying running, swimming, and biking.

I grew up in the beautiful Cascade Mountains of central Oregon, where I met my wife and have two lovely kids. I relocated to Indiana to fill the growing need of healthcare in the region. I maintain a patient centered approach to health care placing all attention on my patients and how to manage their condition. Creating trust and a deep connection with my patients is critical in providing an optimal healing environment. It is all about you! In addition to Chiropractic, I am a self-proclaimed computer nerd. For fun I enjoy building and programing computers. I also dabble in electronic music production. I also enjoy hunting, fishing, hiking, and backpacking.

Originally from Florida, I moved here 20 years ago to do post graduate work at Notre Dame. Though my degree is in Medieval History, I have worked in the Chiropractic field for almost 17 years.

My primary role at Spine and Joint Associates is Referral Coordinator for Physician and Veteran referrals. I also am the Human Resources Manager. Though I am still not quite acclimated to these Midwest winters, I do enjoy raising my family here.
