Personal Biography
I have lived in NH for over 50 years and in Hanover for 40 of those years. My father worked for NE Telephone and we moved extensively throughout NH having lived in Concord, Hampton, Berlin and Manchester twice. I am a retired physician and practiced Orthopaedic surgery for nearly 35 years at both DHMC (1985-2011) and then at New London Hospital (2011-2019) where I also served as Chief Medical Officer. I currently serve on the Board of Trustees at New London Hospital and am on the Board of Directors at the NH Fiscal Policy Institute. I have been married to Wendy, who works at DHMC in Continuing Medical Education, for 39 years and have two wonderful children who live in the Boston area along with our two remarkable grandchildren. I am honored to be serving the citizens of the Hanover and Lyme and throughout the Granite State and will do so with decency and deliberative thought.
