Background

SUMMARY
I studied at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and served for ten years in the Army Reserves. I earned a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting from Viterbo University and worked for several years as an accountant at two Milwaukee corporations before going on to earn my J.D. from Marquette University Law School. I am now in my fourteenth year of legal practice, most of which was spent at larger law firms. Over the years, I have helped hundreds of clients launch their businesses, acquire and lease real estate, navigate the downturn in the economy, and expand their operations.

BEYOND THE FIRM
I enjoy working to effect positive change in my neighborhood and in the community. I recently ran for Milwaukee Common Council in the 14th District, and volunteer regularly with local political campaigns. I’m a board member of the Victory Garden Initiative and an active, past board member of the Bay View Neighborhood Association. Biking, running, and martial arts help keep it all in balance.
