About Me

In addition to my love for the practice of law, I actually do have other interests.  I enjoy hunting, fishing, golf, travel, water sports and most of all I enjoy collecting and growing exotic plants - in particular, orchid species from all over the World.  I likewise enjoy traveling throughout the Caribbean, which is where I became interested in exotic plants and first became interested in orchids.
