I became an attorney to help people. I love getting to know my clients and helping them find solutions to the problems they face. Every case in different. I make it a point of getting to know my clients as I find it helps me argue their cases; a personal connection helps me tailor my advocacy to fit their unique facts presented. A personal connection also helps me identify potential challenges that may lie ahead. As a general practitioner, I take pride in offering a balanced and informed perspective to my clients that helps them achieve the best possible outcome in their case. 

I am a graduate of Reed College and Lewis & Clark Law School. I was a Lead Articles Editor for the Lewis & Clark Law Review. I am admitted to practice before the Oregon State and Federal district courts. I am also an avid, all-season bicycle commuter. 

In my spare time I enjoy hiking and camping with my wife and daughter in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I also enjoy making delicious (if unhealthy) baked goods and collecting records, coins and stamps.
