On my time off, I enjoy visiting my family in El Paso, hiking a new national park with my fiancée, spending time outside with Dixie and Emma or curling up on the couch with a cozy blanket and reading a book.

Personal Biography

I grew up in Fort Stockton and am excited to be back in West Texas serving the community. My fiancé and I met in dental school and have two dogs, Emma and Dixie. To better serve our patients, we both completed a General Practice Residency in Kansas City, MO.

Favorites

I am the youngest of four boys so I love sports and played D3 football and baseball in college (Go Scots!). Aside from my passion of sports, I enjoy being outdoors, trying new restaurants, and taking our two dogs jogging. My favorite vacation getaway is lounging on a beach or hiking in the mountains.
