I have practiced law for over 30 years, and have been working in Wenatchee since 1986. East Wenatchee was my home growing up and I returned to practice law after beginning my career with a brief stint in Yakima. Living in the Wenatchee Valley allows me to take advantage of the outdoor recreational opportunities that I love, particulary boating, fishing, and camping, and to be near my extended family. I am a huge fan of Wenatchee's junior hockey team, the Wenatchee Wild, and I generally enjoy most sports. I also enjoy playing poker, which contrary to many people's opinion is a game of skill rather than luck. I just wish I had more skill.
I am married to a wonderful woman who is also a product of Wenatchee, and have two adult children. After my daughter graduated from my alma mater, WSU, she became a teacher and has returned to teach in East Wenatchee, and my son lives here too so we get to see a lot of them both.
