Biography

I first became interested in Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine (PRM) during my PM&R residency, when I had the privilege of working with Dr. Angeles Badell, an inspiring teacher and pioneer in the young specialty of PRM with a profound understanding of child physical and intellectual development and the effects of genetic and environmental factors on the developing child. I then sought fellowship training in PRM with Dr. Harry Webster at Floating Hospital for Children, where I stayed on for 9 years as an attending until accepting a position as Director of Rehabilitation Medicine at Franciscan Childrens in Brighton. I currently live in Brighton with my wife, 5 children, and our dog, Ollie. I enjoy everything about life in New England and try to take advantage of the opportunities provided by the sea, the mountains, the city and the natural beauty of rural New England.
