My sports medicine experience spans from outpatient Orthopaedics at Kaiser to Associate Team Physician at UC Berkeley. I continue to do sideline coverage for sports and recreational events.
I've been practicing Sports Medicine in the Bay Area for the past 9 years. While training to become a physician, I gravitated toward the patients who were motivated to return to or maintain an active lifestyle. I believe everyone is an athlete! My favorite part of being a sports medicine doctor is helping people understand their physical challenges and then working to overcome them.
I’ve traditionally been a runner, spinner and general exercise class enthusiast. Recently, I started learning to play basketball and taking dance classes. Dance parties at home with my kids are my favorite stress reliever.
Sports Medicine physicians have specific training in treating and preventing illness and injury. At Motion, I work with the entire Care Team to help patients minimize time away from their activities—whether it's working in an office, running a race, or baking at home. In addition to traditional injury evaluations, I can provide patients with diagnostic ultrasound, injection treatments, and regenerative medicine procedures.
Doctor of Chiropractic
Palmer College of Chiropractic West
My experience with professional and elite amateur athletes includes working with the Oracle Team USA for the America's Cup, Purple Patch fitness professional and elite amateur triathletes, and the Olympic Club Rugby Team.
Executive Board of the American Chiropractic Association Councils on Sports Injuries and Physical Fitness (3 years)
I believe movement is medicine. I enjoy partnering with patients and educating them about their bodies, tailoring treatments to the individual — whether they are endurance athletes or experiencing day to day pain. When I treat athletes, we look at their care through a performance lens and I enjoy the challenge of overuse and chronic injuries. I love helping people get back to the things they care about.
When I’m not busy at Motion, you’ll find me on my bike cycling around Mt. Tam and Marin County. I also love trail running, skiing, and any other activities that get me outside.
At Motion, a Chiropractor will determine your treatment plan by identifying the root problem. Treatment typically includes a combination of hands on treatment, specific exercises to help regain strength and range of motion, and specific recommendations/coaching to navigate your recovery. I work with the rest of the care team to develop a treatment plan customized for you.
My special interest include treating sports injuries, lower back injuries, and injuries of the lower extremity (hip, knee, ankle and foot).
Doctor of Physical Therapy
6 years of sports medicine, outpatient physical therapy care
Works with elite and recreational snow sports athletes
I’ve been fortunate to have travelled and practiced in multiple countries, working in many different care settings. What drew me to Physical Therapy is the ability to help people, and that’s what continues to drive me as a clinician. Watching patient’s not only get rid of their symptoms but also learn more about their bodies and how to prevent injury in the future is extremely rewarding.
During my training in Queensland, Australia, I developed a strong affinity for the ocean and surfing - my favorite pastime here in beautiful Northern California. Surfing, snowboarding, trail running, hiking and camping also keep me busy when I’m not treating patients.
A Physical Therapist (PT) combines their knowledge of human anatomy, the way the body moves, and their knowledge of injuries, to identify reasons why you are experiencing your symptoms.
At Motion, a PT will help you identify the root cause of your symptoms and work with the rest of the Care Team to prevent the recurrence of the same injury. My special interests are in complex knee surgery rehabilitation, and treating tendon injuries of the shoulder, knee and foot/ankle, but I enjoy treating all types of injuries including chronic low back and neck pain.

12 years experience as a clinical physician extender and Athletic Trainer, working with adult and pediatric patients
On field athletic training for high school and community events
I knew I wanted to be an Athletic Trainer after sustaining a knee injury my sophomore year of high school. The care I received from my school’s Athletic Trainer helped fuel a passion for getting athletes back to playing the sports they love. I am excited about differential diagnosis - understanding the when, how, and why of injuries. I am also focused on motion analysis, return to play, and injury prevention training.
When I’m not at work, you will find me hiking, biking, and throwing the lacrosse ball around. In my spare time, I enjoy DIY projects around the house, perfecting my homebrew beer recipes and having fun with my wife and two kids.
A Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC) collaborates with other clinicians to provide preventive services, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries. At Motion, ATCs play an integral part in the team-based care approach, working directly with patients to help determine the next best steps for their care. I provide functional and sport specific training in conjunction with other clinicians to help patients achieve their movement goals — whether that's returning to daily life activities or preparing for a high-level sporting event.

6 years of Athletic Training experience including NCAA Division I collegiate athletics, outpatient clinic rehabilitation, high school athletics, and teaching.
Musculoskeletal injury can be an exhausting journey. As an athletic trainer, I’m devoted to helping people navigate that journey from start to finish. I believe in endless growth and learning, so I enjoy helping my patients do the same via shared understanding of healthy movement and the body’s response to physical stress and activity. As an athlete myself, I’m dedicated to helping people return to their lifestyle pain free and better prepared for their body’s next adventure.
If you’re looking for me on the move, I’ll be snowboarding, playing soccer, softball, basketball, or finding new ways to stay competitive. I love circuit style strength workouts, traveling, and hiking/exploring with my girlfriend and pup.
A Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC) collaborates with other clinicians to provide individualized therapeutic care to every patient. At Motion, ATCs work directly with patients to establish initial treatment needs and help determine the next best steps for their care. I work with our multi-talented team to bring our patients the best in person and app based care, including therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation, injury education, and functional and sport specific training.
