My grandmother's encouragement to pursue medicine led me to serve the elderly and help them manage their many health challenges. It was during my third year of medical school that I decided to become a surgeon. I chose vascular surgery during my residency because of my affection for the patient population, which is diverse but mostly senior adults.

While I enjoy the technical aspects of surgery, I am passionate about helping patients who have vascular diseases. These conditions may stem from risk factors such as tobacco use, excess weight or inactivity. I am grateful for the expertise of many Novant Health colleagues who help my patients quit smoking, lose weight, become more active and make other healthful lifestyle changes. Each patient needs - and receives - an individually tailored health plan. My team also regularly takes part in clinical trials of new devices and treatments for vascular disease. Embracing change responsibly gives my patients access to state-of-the-art treatment options.

I attended the nation's military medical school, Uniformed University of the Health Sciences. After that, I completed further professional training and served our country as a general/vascular surgeon for 14 years while on active duty in the U.S. Army. My wife and three children have traveled the world with me, and we are grateful for the many friends we made along the way.

We moved to Winston-Salem in 2004 and have no plans to ever move again. In 2004, after our children left the nest, I joined the U.S. Army Reserve and served two tours of duty in Afghanistan. My military experience provides an instant connection with patients who are also veterans.

My favorite pastime is saltwater kayak fishing, and I'm happy to trade fish stories with anyone who will listen. My wife and I are enjoying our empty nest years and our only household companion, Louie, a chocolate Lab.
