I was born in Montana, but spent much of my youth in Germany and Spain. I am fluent in German and studied Law and Political Science for several years at Heidelberg University in Germany before earning my law degree at the University of San Diego. I have traveled the world my entire life. I achieved my black belt after four years of practicing Taekwondo, which I taught for an additional five years. I love deep-sea fishing, diving, white-water rafting, camping, and traveling with my wife and children.
