My girlfriend and I have been in Seattle for over three years now and we absolutely love it. As she likes to say, "We live in a calendar." All the pictures you see on this website are from travels we have taken all over the Pacific Northwest.

My love for taking pictures reflects my appreciation for

beauty and my purpose in medicine. I can't help but be

struck by the perfect aligning of tree branches, clouds,

sunrays, or mountain ridges... It's almost as if a secret

- the secret - were revealed in a flash.

For me, beauty is truth, seeing, knowing what is actually there, again, that inner secret revealed. Amidst the constant shifting, there are moments of return, of re-alignment, attunement and then a supernovic explosion of perfection... it's beautiful.

                                                                         Patients are brought in by that experience of

                                                                         non-alignment, of being out-of-tune. They

                                                                         are tired of internal shifts trending away

                                                                         from peace. Ever since I was a little kid,

                                                                         what I see in people is exactly that internal

                                                                         misalignment. And I see it over-laying this

                                                                         glorious brilliance of  innate divinity, of perfect beauty. I see two  people in one, really just one person struggling for not fully aligning with themself.

Medicine is my tool for aiding people in realigning.

Together we take a journey, walking back down

the winding path of their life, until we finally crest the hill,

forge the river that allows that view of their own

personal perfection, their own beauty of who they truly are.
