About me

I grew up primarily in Michigan and also Gilbert, Arizona.  I have lived in several other states, including Nebraska, Utah and Nevada.  I also spent 2 years living in Brazil and am still relatively proficient in Portuguese. 

Prior to law school, I received an English Degree at Brigham Young University.  While at BYU, I spent several summers working as a Counselor for a youth program, which I enjoyed immensely.  I graduated from Creighton Law school in 2009 and currently am practicing in the areas of Bankruptcy and Family Law.    After, finishing law school, I decided to make my home back here in Arizona.  

 Outside of practicing law I enjoy a myriad of other pursuits including theater, basketball, racquetball, writing, and dancing.
