About me

I joined Ulmer & Berne's real etstate group upon passing the July 2008 bar examination.  My interest in real estate is largely derived from my passion for urban history and redevelopment.  I take great satisfaction in seeing the changes our firm's work makes in the built landscape where we reside. 


I grew up in the Cleveland area and currently live in the West Park neighborhood of Cleveland with my wife, daughter and two cats.  As a young attorney, I look forward to many years of learning, assisting clients, and making a difference in the community through my practice.
