I am a native Atlantan and the son of two lawyers.  When I am not practicing law I like to spend time with my family.  I also play basketball in weekly pick up games. 


For the last four years I have coached my daughters soccer team in the Peachtree Road United Methodist Church league.


When I get the chance, I enjoy traveling and fishing.
