About Me

Presently I work full time as a physical therapist at the VA Palo Alto.  I primarily work in the outpatient clinic where I treat Veterans with various orthopedic and neurologic injuries.  I also serve as a team leader and I provide coverage in the polytrauma PT clinic and the Extended Care facility at our VA hospital.  Prior to this, I served as a helicopter pilot in the US Marine Corp and flew missions in Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm.  I retired from the US Marine Corps Reserves as a LtCol in 2008.  
I live with my wife in San Ramon, CA.  We have two grown children living and working in Los Angeles, CA.  I enjoy bass fishing, hiking, traveling and collecting older sports cards.


I graduated from UC Davis in 1986 with a degree in Physical Education and earned my certification as an Athletic Trainer from the NATA.  I completed OCS and TBS becoming an Officer in the US Marine Corps in 1987.  I completed Navy Flight School becoming a pilot in 1989.  I graduated from USC with a MPT degree in 1995.  I became a APTA Board certified Geriatric Specialist in 1999.  I work as a full time Physical Therapist for the VA where I keep current attending Physical Therapy courses and APTA conventions.

Teaching Interests

I teach multiple inservices at the VA including injury prevention and physical therapy intervention.  I was a speaker at APTA CSM in Las Vegas in 2014.  I have enjoyed teaching the amputee rehabilitation course at SMU for the past 10 years.
