About me: I love this quote: “Don’t be afraid of being different, be afraid of being the same as everyone else.” This philosophy has guided me in every aspect of my life. It drives me to question, investigate, and innovate.

DOB: December 9th

Fun Fact: I failed my first driving test because I was speeding.

Hobbies: Exercise, motorcycles, working on fast cars.

What do I love about Viking: I love having the opportunity to build something different that helps people improve their quality of life. I also get a kick out of our clinic being able to offer a unique level of service that is typically foreign to most medical clinics.
