I am a native Texan and have called San Antonio home for the past 25 years. I became interested in medicine at age 12 when my father passed away unexpectedly from a heart attack. I am a graduate of Douglas Mac Arthur High School and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from St. Marys University. I completed my medical school education and Family Medicine residency at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. I am board certified in Family Medicine and was hired in July 2013 as Assistant Professor/Clinical and Assistant Director of Medical Student Education in The Department of Family & Community Medicine. My two greatest passions are teaching and patient care.

I have the privilege of teaching and mentoring students and residents at all stages of their training in the hospital, clinic, community, and classroom settings. I am currently the Family Medicine Clerkship Director, a Synthesis case facilitator for first year medical students, a longitudinal preceptor for pre-clinical medical students, and a mentor for students in the Family Medicine Interest Group (FMIG) and those interested in pursuing a career in Family Medicine.

Since my Family Medicine internship in 2010, I have provided primary care to patients of all ages in the Family Health Center (FHC) at University Health System?s Robert B. Green Campus. I also work periodically in the FHC Well Child Clinic to provide check-ups and sports physicals, manage and coordinate care for children with chronic medical and mental health conditions, and address the acute needs of pediatric walk-ins. I am the main faculty member at the FHC who cares for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. I also care for adolescents at the Bexar County Juvenile Detention Center and at the Cindy Taylor Krier Juvenile Correctional Treatment Center. I am an attending physician for the Family Medicine Inpatient Service at University Hospital four to five weeks each academic year.

My professional home is the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine (STFM). In 2015, I completed STFMs Medical Student Educators Developmental Institute (MSEDI), a one year fellowship for medical student educators. I am currently serving a 3 year term on the Steering Committee for STFMs Medical Student Education Collaborative where I work with educators from across the country to address educational needs of students and faculty. I am also serving a 2 year term as Co-Editor for the STFM Messenger Education Column, a peer-reviewed monthly electronic publication sent to all STFM members that focuses on descriptions of innovative curricula, challenges in medical school and residency education, faculty development, and other hot educational topics.

Outside of medicine, my beautiful wife and 3 young boys keep life in perspective and bring me my greatest joys. My hobbies include coaching childrens sports, playing golf, and working on various outdoor home improvement projects.
