I was raised near Illinois Wesylan’s campus and educated through the Bloomington public school system. My college career included cross country and track where I was an All American athlete. My Zoology degree from Miami University prepared me for Dental School at the University of Illinois where I was fortunate to meet my wife and partner, Dr Stacey. After graduation, we chose to return to my hometown to practice dentistry. After being an associate for seven years, it was time for Dr. Stacey and I to open our own dental practice, Bloomington Family Dental. Our goal has always been to create a comfortable setting for our patients with a practical and technologically advanced office. Technology changes at a rapid rate and we continue to grow and morph with all of the new changes and advances in dentistry.


I love the people of Bloomington and am passionate about the dental needs of our community. Dr Stacey and I adore kids and have relished our time working in the McLean County Heath Department as the children’s dentist for 10 years. I have enjoyed donating numerous Saturday mornings serving in the Gary S. Johnson extraction clinics. I continue to be active in various dental associations including the McLean County Dental Society where I have held numerous offices including President in 2005 and awarded the Presidents Award in 2006. On the state level, I have served as a Delegate, Alternate Delegate and Student Delegate to the Illinois State Dental Society. I love mentoring whether it's for new dentists and/or children.


Outside of dentistry, I volunteer and have served two terms on the Mulberry School Board.


In and out of the office, I tend to be a gadget guy. I like the outdoors and am a sports enthusiast. I love the water so swimming, sailing, scuba diving, snorkeling and surfing are passions. On solid ground, I love a good game of golf, walking, and landscaping. Take me anywhere as I love the adventure that travel brings. I keep in shape by working out so that I am able to give my all to my favorite activities. If you see me in the water, on the golf course or at the gym, please say, hi. I do find quiet time to read journals, pop culture and non-fiction and I love all kinds of music.


In 2014, I was profoundly honored to be inducted into Miami University's Athletic Hall of Fame.


Above all, Dr Stacey and I have three amazing children who have made our lives full, complete and who inspire me to be the best I can be.
