1. Are you originally from Portland? If not, where did you grow up?

Two things I love combined.

I take a holistic approach to health and wellness, so I’m always considering diet and lifestyle when treating patients.
5. What would you personally look for in a Botox or dermal filler injector?
Relationships are most important to me. The vibe I feel with my provider is crucial.
Technique and experience are very important as well, but I need trust and care with the person I allow to treat me.

A high-quality cleanser. And SPF.
I should probably just say SPF for prevention, but a good cleanser: yeah.
7. When you’re not at Skin by Lovely, how do you like to spend your time?
Either adulting (cooking, cleaning, quality time with my son, etc.) or something creative like music or art.
I go crazy if I don’t frequently try to produce the sounds or visual ideas that cross my mind.
8. What motivates you daily?
Love and community.
I absolutely love to see people improving their lives and succeeding.
9. What is your proudest accomplishment?
10. Where do you hope to see yourself in 10 years?
I plan to be much more educated, respected, and skilled in all aspects of my life as an injection specialist, father, doctor, trainer, educator, musician, artist, partner, and friend (in no particular order).
In addition, I plan to be at a place in my life where I can improve the lives of those around the world through charity or philanthropic endeavors.
