I graduated from Bristow High School (Go Purple Pirates!) then came to NSU to receive my Bachelors of Science and Doctorate of Optometry. After graduation I worked at a Cherokee Nation clinic until I felt ready to return to NSUOCO and begin my professorship. I live here in Tahlequah with my wife and three kids.
Vision Rehabilitation/Low Vision
Efficacy of treatment modalities in Native Americans
New Optometric/Ophthalmology Technologies
My teaching interests include Vision Science and Visual Rehabilitation. Vision science interests me because our brain (and not our eyes) generates our visual reality. Vision Rehabilitation is a rewarding field where I am able to help visually impaired patients attain their best vision.
