I am a native of Bethesda, Maryland who discovered the joys of the Pioneer Valley while attending Amherst College. I received an excellent education at Amherst, but more importantly met my future wife, Cheryl. I returned to my home state for medical training at The University of Maryland School of Medicine, graduating in 1986 and completed my residency at New England Medical Center/Boston Floating Hospital. After staying an extra year as Chief Resident, it was time to find a real job. Happily there was an opening at Northampton Area Pediatrics so we were able to return to Western Massachusetts in 1990 and have been here ever since.

I thoroughly enjoy the practice of Pediatrics. In what other profession can you find the personal satisfaction of helping others while they help you "keep it real"? My little patients are never afraid to pull on my bowtie or tell me how old I'm getting (they ask me where my hair is going, and point to the old pictures on the wall), and I admire them for that. It is a privilege to help both children and parents through illness and health.

I am the medical director at NAP, helping to keep us up to date on the latest practice guidelines.  I enjoy parent education and run a series of workshops for our patients.  While I am a general pediatrician, I do have some areas of special interest including asthma, sports medicine, ADHD and infectious diseases.

In life outside the office, I cherish spending time with my two wonderful sons and my wife. I participate in community projects and have a great love both for sports (especially hockey) and reading. I have also been spotted around town practicing and teaching karate.
