About Me

I love collaborating with international professionals, investors, experts, and families as they pursue their dreams in America. I also understand the immigrant experience on a personal level. My wife is a naturalized U.S. citizen, and I have lived abroad in Israel for 8 years - studying, working and starting a family. I know what it means to build a life in another country and the hard work and determination it takes to succeed along that path.


During law school, I worked as an immigration paralegal within the legal department of a Fortune 100 corporation, juggling the challenges of career, evening law studies, and three young children. After completing my studies, I gained a solid foundation for representing corporations and other businesses by practicing corporate transactional law at the Seattle office of an international law firm, where I handled general corporate matters, mergers and acquisitions, securities matters, corporate finance and U.S. export control regulatory matters.
