About me

I was born and raised in Bakersfield, California. I graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in English. After college, I worked in Washington DC for a large defense contractor. I returned to California for law school and graduated Order of the Coif from UC Berkeley (Boalt Hall) in 2001. My practice centers around employer defense. More specifically, I provide counsel on a wide-range of employment law issues, including privacy, wage and hour, harassment, discrimination, and termination.
