About me

In addition to practicing law, I also teach Criminal Law at one of the local colleges.  Outside of work, my interests include hunting, fishing, hiking, camping and just about anything outdoors. I played Div I tennis in college, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, competed in the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon three times, and backpacked into some of the most rugged and remote terrain in the mountains of Idaho to bowhunt elk. In the summer you will usually find me with my wife and son at the beach or out in the boat.  I work to live, not live to work!
