About me

Prior to practicing law, I was instrumental in the development and growth of two software startup businesses.  I know first hand the issues facing small business, from negotiating commercial leases, to securing private equity, to closing multimillion dollar contracts with Fortune 500 companies.  Every step of the way presents unique challenges.


Additionally, I have experience with local community planning groups, the development process including entitlements, and environmental regulations.  This experience has taken me from being an elected board member of the Torrey Hills Community Planning Board, working at the City of San Diego City Attorney's Office, and a local boutique law firm focused on land use/environmental law.


In an effort to provide cost effective, results oriented personal service, I have recently opened my own practice.
