I have taught in Doctor of Physical programs for the past decade as both an adjunct and core faculty member at various institutions across the country. I have a strong background in the basic sciences and enjoy helping students make connections between foundational anatomical and physiological concepts and clinical practice.
I enjoy running, watching baseball and basketball, traveling, cooking, and spending time with my wife and dog.

My primary teaching interests are in foundational neuroscience.
Over the course of my career, I've also taught courses in anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, evidence-based practice, and basic clinical skills.
My research training is in foundational mechanisms of pain sensation. More recently I've entered the realm of neuroscience education and have served as an author and associate editor for a textbook on neuroscience-based fundamentals for rehabilitation.
