I am a lifelong resident of Delaware County, Indiana.  My father was an attorney, and I attended school in Perry Township at Center School.  Upon graduation from high school I attended Indiana University where I obtained my bachelor's degree in Government.  I then went on to law school and obtained my law degree.  After being admitted to practice law in 1971, I joined my father in law practice.  I have served as a Deputy Prosecutor, have served 2 years on the Muncie City Council, and 13 years as a member of the Muncie Indiana Transit System Board of Directors.
