In 1995, I received an Honorable Discharge from the United States Marine Corps after completing a six year term as an infantryman. During my time on active duty, I participated in Operation Desert Storm, serving in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. That same year, I received a Bachelor of Science degree from Western Connecticut State University.
In 1997, I accepted a position as a legal assistant for Wocl Leydon, LLC. While working there, I was admitted to Pace University Law School as an evening student. In November of 2003, I was admitted to practice law in the State of Connecticut.
