- Lincoln, Nebraska
- Born and raised in Alliance, NE, I graduated from Creighton University and the U of Nebraska College of Medicine. I ran my first marathon during my second year of medical school, completing the 1998 Chicago Marathon in 4:23:59. I was hooked, and began a quest to complete a marathon in all 50 states. I ran the famous Boston Marathon in 2002 after qualifying with a personal record of 3:09:52 at the Twins Cities Marathon in 2000. I've completed 45 marathons to date.Training for and completing marathons sparked my interest in the human musculoskeletal system, particularly injuries to the foot and ankle. I completed my residency in Orthopaedic Surgery & Rehabilition at UNMC. I have advanced fellowship training in surgery of the foot & ankle, and have practiced orthopaedic surgery at Nebraska Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine in Lincoln, NE since 2008. I am very happily married and have three small children who bring me endless joy. I have a busy orthopaedic practice, but with the help of my outstanding clinical staff and support of my loving and very understanding wife, have been able to balance the demands of medicine, family, and running for 16 years.
