About me

I am a former Sheriff's Deputy and Probation and Parole Officer and am a native of Murray, Kentucky.  I received a Bachelor's degree in criminal justice and minor in Spanish from Murray State University.  During college and after, I worked for the Calloway County Sheriff's Office as a deputy and dispatcher.  After I left the Sheriff's Office, I spent six years as a Probation and Parole Officer with the Kentucky Department of Corrections, where I supervised adult felony offenders in the community.


I left the Department of Corrections in pursuit of a law degree at the Southern Illinois University School of Law.  While in law school, I worked as a clerk for Calloway and Marshall County Circuit Judge Dennis Foust as well as Graves County Prosecutor David Hargrove. 


In May 2014, I established a solo law practice in Murray.  In June 2015, I joined the law firm of Haverstock, Bell and Pitman as an Associate.


Outside of the courtroom, I consider myself an outdoor enthusiast. I also enjoy reading, traveling and live music. I reside in Murray with my wife and two daughters.
