About Me

I am a former Pastor (20+ years) who made a career change in my late 40s.  I am married with two adopted (China) children.  My previous pastoral work influences my legal focus and interests, which tend away from litigation and toward win-win resolutions of conflict.  I am especially interested in helping seniors and their families understand and deal with the complexities of our modern society.

In my spare time, I am a musician, composer, gardener, stock trader, and poetry writer.
