About Me

I pride myself on being a "native New Yorker," having been brought up in Greenwich Village during the 1960s. A creative soul by nature, prior to practicing law I was employed as an assistant film editor, an actor, and a singer/songwriter. I now apply my professional background and extensive experience as a business immigration lawyer in developing immigration-related solutions tailored to the specific needs and objectives of our firm's clientele. 


With respect to outside interests, I am a serious recreational tennis player, and also a former runner, having run in five New York City marathons (best time: 3 hours, 20 minutes).
