Personal Information


Currently Teaching (2017-2018)

My academic interests center on the neurobiology of pain and inflammation, neuroimmunology, and chiropractic history. I have been involved in mapping and studying the functions of Substance P and other neuropeptides associated with neurogenic inflammation and central facilitation. I am currently studying the neurobiological attributes of the subluxation.

Clinically, I have studied and currently practice Gonstead technique, applied kinesiology and traditional Chinese medicine. I serve as the chair of the Department of Basic Science at Northwestern. In addition to the academic courses, I have also taught extracurricular classes at Northwestern in traditional fly-tying and fly fishing.
