Athletic & Training Background

Athletically, I was a 3 sport athlete in high school playing soccer, basketball, and baseball. I had aspirations to continuing playing baseball in college but secondary to injuries and pursuit of the best education in physical therapy I elected not to play in college. I did play intramural soccer as well as intramural volleyball throughout college. Presently, I continue to play and coach soccer. I also play in a competitive kickball league year round. Currently, I also workout/lift 5 days a week using a variety of different techniques from traditional training to CrossFit type training.

Current Role Working with Athletes

As a clinician, our clinic provides athletic training services to 6 local high schools and as a result I treat athletes on a regular basis in the clinic. Furthermore, our clinic has partnered with a local orthopedic office to begin injury prevention training seminars for each sports season at the local schools. We have designed an organization entitled the Finger Lakes Sports Medicine Institute ( We also are currently in the process of opening a fitness facility designed to provide local athletes a place to enhance their athletic performance.

Professional Philosophy

My treatment philosophies include an emphasis on the combination of hands on techniques including spinal and extremity manipulation/mobilization/IASTM with functional exercise targeted at improving mobility deficits and strength deficits. I also combine the aforementioned with principles of McKenzie based examination, evaluation, and treatment. The goal of all my treatment is to return the athlete or patient back to sport/activity as quickly and safely as possible.
