About me

Attorney Advertising. 

Hated math in school but still became a tax attorney!  Shows how  an inspiring professor can influence lives.


My father was an attorney.  I owe everything to him for his help and guidance.


Lifelong interest in outdoor sports including surfing, hiking, rock climbing and downhill skiing.  The beach at Asbury Park (Jersey shore) is my second home.  That town has come way back since the troubled 80's and 90's and the days of Bruce Springstein.


The two years spent as a lieutenant in the Army after college were very valuable to me and I encourage young people to consider serving the country.


I am the father of 3 girls (now young women) so I am always learning.
