I consider Boston to be my hometown, as it was the place I lived during most of my formative years. There I attended Northeastern University, where I obtained my B.S. in rehab science and a doctorate of physical therapy.
My career as a physical therapist began as an intern with the New England Patriots. There I developed skills in sports medicine and orthopedics. I then moved to other states and worked in a variety of clinical settings that subsequently improved my scope and understanding of rehabilitative medicine.
After working in outpatient physical therapy for years, my desire to provide excellent individualized care led me to start a PT facility of my own. Joining with Matt Oster of The Fitness Lab, we have opened a facility with both PT and personal training services to help others build healthy functioning bodies and prevent re-occurring injuries.
Eventually, I settled on making my home here in beautiful Colorado with my wife, dog and three cats. When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, snowboarding, hiking, paddleboarding and escaping to the nearest beach.
Finding my passion
Growing up playing soccer and snowboarding, I always seemed to find myself transitioning between some level of training and inevitably, the dreaded physical therapy table. It was through personal injuries that I gained a truer appreciation of the impact both fields could have on a person.
I admired, sometimes grudgingly, the vast change that a great therapist or trainer could make on a person's life in helping them restore function so they could get back to doing the things they loved doing.
There is nothing more rewarding to me than partnering with a training client to help them achieve that difficult wellness or performance goal.
My days at the Fitness Lab are split between treating physical therapy patients and training clients. Sessions are one-on-one and last between 45 minutes and an hour. During sessions, I work to educate my patients about their bodies — specifically how to correctly move them and how to avoid further injury, while improving their mobility and function. If needed, I use manual therapy to facilitate patient recovery.
When I have a free moment, I grab a quick core workout, read the latest journal articles on sports medicine, orthopedic and training, or partake in a conversation about my beloved Boston sports teams — go Patriots!
