I was born and raised in St. Paul by a very lower class large mixed family. I was the oldest of seven kids, and eventually became the first person in my extended or close family to go to law school. I spend most of my time working on cases, but in my spare time I am in a cover band as a hobby with one of my brothers and one of my cousins. Playing in the band is a great way to let go of some of the stess caused by working hard all week trying to help people keep their lives in order by defending them in court. The job is stressful but extremely rewarding.
