I started studying pre-med at college. While I was at college I had the opportunity to go to Japan for a class to study ceramics. During my stay in Japan I was invited by one of the hosts to apprentice in ceramics. I agreed to the apprenticeship and the next fall was living in Japan. After my apprenticeship I still wanted to be involved with healthcare but I had been influenced by Asian culture and found myself drawn to acupuncture. One day I was talking with a chiropractic intern and mentioned my interest and he recommended I look at the acupuncture program at his school, NWHSU. I attended an open house and the lecture on the principles of acupuncture was inspiring and I have been following that path ever since.
I am board certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) in Acupuncture, and is licensed by the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Northwestern Health Sciences University with a masters degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. I interned at the Edith Davis Acupuncture Clinic and completed clinical rotations at Pillsbury House and the Salvation Army. During the spring of 2011, I completed a two-week intensive certification program at Tianjin University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Tianjin, China. I am proficient in several modalities within Chinese medicine including needling, cupping, Tui-Na massage, and Chinese herbal medicine, to provide effective personalized care for patients.
I have lived in Saint Paul most of my life. I currently reside there with my wife, two children, and extended family. In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my family, writing, and ceramics.
