About Myself:
The Bay Area is where I spent most of my earlier life. It is also where I met my wonderful wife with whom I share two amazing children. Together, the four of us enjoy traveling, biking, and watching movies with a giant bucket of popcorn. Whenever you see me, you will always find me smiling and happy. This is my outlook on life and I like to share this with people around me. I’m actively involved in Relay for Life and the American Heart Association Heart Walk. In addition, I enjoy lecturing and educating people on diabetic foot care. All these activities support my need to connect and help people around me.

My philosophy in life and in practicing Podiatric Medicine is based on Albert Pine’s quote, “What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal.” I love working together with each individual patient and their family to help find the best solution for their existing foot ailments which in turn will give them a better quality of life. I am honored and privileged to be a part of the Foot and Ankle Institute working together with my colleagues and staff as a team to care for Kern County and its residents.
