About Me

After graduating from Lewis and Clark law school, I could not imagine living or practing anywhere but the Pacific Northwest. Apart from my involvement with the legal community since 2008, I have spent as much time as possible exploring the coast and incredible mountain areas near Portland. Growing up in rural Michigan, I apprecaite that people in the Portland metro area are close-knit despite its size. I am looking forward to making my mark here as an attorney and active community member.
