Christian completed his undergraduate degree at Kean University, eventually going on to earn his Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Stony Brook University. Christian became interested in physical therapy as a career while a student at Dumont High School. He sustained a wrist fracture that was not prescribed any therapy in the recovery process, and it was at that point he learned how beneficial PT could have been. After that, he was motivated to gain more exposure to the profession and completed several internships in college. Those experiences solidified his passion for helping people through movement.

While at Stony Brook, Christian became well versed in Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA). He plans on becoming certified as an Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS). He enjoys treating the athletic population, specifically overhead athletes, combat sport athletes and runners.

Outside of the office, Christian enjoys playing basketball, weightlifting and Muay Thai. He plays the jazz guitar and drums. You can also find him freestyling on his longboard.
