I grew up in the Seattle Area and lived there for most of my life. I started a family and settled into work in the mortgage industry for some years.  Dissatisfaction with the mortgage industry along with a desire to help people drove me to pursue a degree in law.  

After moving to Portland and marrying the love of my life, I was accepted at Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where I graduated Cum Laude in January, 2009.  After returning to  Portland and passing the Oregon State Bar, I had an opportunity to move to the coast and set up a practice in Florence. I opened my practice here in Florence in January, 2010, and have been here ever since. My wife and I have fallen in love with this little town and are happy to be a part of this community.

When I am not working, I like to spend time with my wife and our three dogs.  I also enjoy baking fresh bread, and even dabble some at woodworking.
