I was born and raised in Pennsylvania. I have not lived outside this state as I was in college in Pittsburgh, medical school in Philadelphia and went to residency near my home outside Pittsburgh. I have a step daughter and my wife and I are expecting a son summer 2015. We are quite excited to start my career in Beaumont. The major factor for the relocation was my wife. She went to college at LSU and worked for a time out of Houston. Her time throughout those areas created a love for the region which I am excited to develop as well. I greatly look forward to learning about and living in Texas, the gulf coast and Beaumont, developing a practice there and creating a home with my family.
