I am a primary care sports medicine physician whose career highlights me as a translational scientist and domain expert in sports medicine. After graduating from LECOM, Erie, PA I completed a transitional internship at NMCP, Portsmouth, VA. I then served as a General Medical Officer with Naval Special Warfare, Little Creek, VA. prior to entering and completing Undersea Medical Officer Training at NUMI, Groton, CT and NDSTC, Panama City, FL. After completing a tour at NHBC Bangor, Silverdale, WA I received an honorable discharge from the U.S. Navy. I then completed a Family Medicine residency at St Petersburg General Hospital, St Petersburg, FL and a Primary Care Sports Medicine fellowship at VCOM/Auburn University, Auburn, AL. under the leadership of Michael Goodlett, MD and James Andrews, MD. My clinical practice focuses on the optimization of wellness through the relationship of health, medicine, fitness and nutrition. I have served as faculty at multiple medical colleges and colleges of osteopathic medicine throughout the country and work across the many facets of sports from high school to NCAA Division 1 and professional levels. I currently serve the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee as team physician for multiple team USA athletes and National Governing Bodies. My research interest includes dietary supplementation and sports nutrition, translational sports medicine, concussion evaluation and objective assessment and movement health. I currently serve as Director of Clinical Research at Sparta Science and Associate Professor of Sports Medicine/Performance at University of Western States. I appreciate the application of clinical sports medicine through the lens of sport performance, injury prevention and the development of rehabilitation protocols.
