About Me

I grew up in North St. Louis County and attended Chaminade College Prepatory in St. Louis. After that, I went to the University of Dayton in Ohio for a degree in Psychology. I then attended the University of Dayton Law School and graduated in 2010. I am licensed in both Missouri and Illinois, licensed to practice in front of the U.S. District Court of Eastern Missouri, and am certified to deal directly with the Department of Veterans Affairs. In my spare time, I enjoy playing the guitar and supporting the St. Louis sports teams.
