About me

Since 1990 I have been an IT pro, and since 2010 a Minnesota attorney.


As a technician I am skilled in Windows, UNIX/Linux, OS X, and NetWare administration, and in configuring applications ranging from MS Office up to enterprise email and calendaring, helpdesk, and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. I have built and maintained Novell NDS trees, deployed Active Directory policies, configured Blackberry, Citrix, and PBX services, maintained POS systems, and used Final Cut Studio and Adobe CS4 tools to edit an educational DVD. Current interests include Oracle database administration and advanced Linux solutions.


In 2007 I entered William Mitchell College of Law, and in 2010 I was sworn into the Minnesota bar. I have handled family, probate, and (while in school) criminal matters. I now focus my part-time practice on Wills, Estates, Trusts, and Probate.


Personally, I play with computers, spend time with family, read, bike, sail, ski, play obscure board and card games with friends, and watch Netflix. I also enjoy learning about science and write a bit. For a wee bit more about me see my LinkedIn profile.
