I was raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma and earned a bachelor’s degree in Physics from Hendrix College and a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from Washington University in St Louis. After graduating, I spent 4 years active duty Air Force as a performance and software engineer in Albuquerque, New Mexico. After leaving active duty, I worked for a private engineering company as a systems engineer as well as served in the Air Force Reserves as an intelligence officer. During my time as an engineer, I discovered that I was not passionate about the engineering career field. I discovered that I had a passion for helping people. As a competitive runner, I had multiple experiences in physical therapy offices and realized that the physical therapy career field was more in line with what I was looking for.
Wanting to experience a different part of the country, I moved to Maine and earned my doctorate degree in Physical Therapy from the University of New England. After graduating, my wife and I returned to Oklahoma. However, we had a love for Maine because it fit with our active lifestyles so we moved back in the summer of 2015. I then joined the Greater Brunswick Physical Therapy team in November of 2015.
My physical therapy background is primarily in orthopedics with an emphasis in manual therapy. I’ve found the combination of manual techniques with exercise to be highly effective to treat most conditions. I have extensive experience with joint replacements, arthritic joints, repetitive injuries, traumatic musculoskeletal injuries and endurance athletes. In addition to manual therapy, I have advanced training in mechanical assessment and treatment (MDT method) as well as kinesiotaping. As a runner myself, I also have special interest in treating runners.
In my free time, I still run competitively, racing distances from the 5K to marathon. My wife, son and I enjoy getting outside during all seasons so you’ll also find me hiking, backpacking, snowboarding, kayaking and cycling.
