About me

More than anything, I enjoy spending time with my family. A wise man once said that nothing you accomplish in life will compensate for failure in your own home.


I spend one week every summer on a "High Adventure" activity as a leader of local youth. So far, we have rafted the Deschutes River in Oregon, cycled the San Juan Islands in Washington, backpacked the Wallawa Mountains in Oregon and canoed the Dwarshak Reservoir in Idaho.


I enjoy athletics and compete in triathlons. I enjoyed the Blue Lake triathlon in Oregon and the SpudMan triathlon in Idaho in 2008. 


I lived in France and Switzerland for 2 years as a missionary. I learned French. I developed a love for all things international, and look forward to doing more international legal work.


In my legal practice, I enjoy meeting new people and always focus on customer satisfaction.
