How I got started:
I was always interested in orthopaedic sports surgery after I tore my own ACL. In high school I wanted to become an orthopaedic sports surgeon which only requires an additional 14 years of school of training, so there were a few naysayers along the way! Somehow I was fortunate to obtain a sports fellowship with Dr. Andrews and loved working in Florida while taking care of the athletes we watch on TV. Ultimately, I got started when I was young and my parents taught me about a work ethic, perseverance, and dedication.
Throughout all this I have always been interested in finance and investing. We took a loan after the stock market crash in 2009 to buy stocks and have continued ever since that time. My brother has worked in finance since the early 2000’s so he has also been a great influence. I have been blessed to have some great partners at Bone & Joint and BSA who are involved in various business ventures who have been great mentors. My wife and I have our own property business that we started last year and our properties are growing each year.
What I do every day:
Surgery, clinic, take care of the University of Mary athletes, medical board meetings, other business meetings, and most importantly enjoy my wonderful wife and two daughters.

We published a paper in the Journal of Arthroscopy last year while here in Bismarck
Challenges: We face them every day in medicine, surgery, real estate, personal life and other businesses. It helps us grow and better ourselves.
Advice for other young professionals: Figure out solutions when others are hung up on other things that just serve as distractors (disappointment, complaining, etc.). Don’t be afraid to dream too big or worry about obsessing about your work. Work and life balance is excellent when one loves their jobs and is able to enjoy quality family time also. We involve our kids in as much of our businesses as possible. They have a great start and have each purchased a couple shares of Disney and Apple so that they can learn the ups and down of finance.
