My background is clinical medicine, I practiced radiology in a small hospital in Sandpoint, Idaho, from 1984 through 1998.  Along the way I returned to school to complete a Master’s degree in Administrative Medicine at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and then a post-doctoral fellowship in Biomedical and Health Informatics at the University of Washington.  I joined the faculty at the University of Washington in 1999 and currently enjoy teaching courses across three graduate programs, at the intersection of clinical care, health care administration and applied clinical informatics.  I also work in these three programs developing and rolling out distance and technology-enhanced educational models.

When not at work you will likely find me in the mountains around the Pacific Northwest - one of the most beautiful places I’ve experienced...
