My interest in practicing law began at a young age. When I was nine months old, an incident at an at-home daycare center made me a very young plaintiff in my first personal injury suit. Since then, I have been drawn to the profession through incredible role-models and a passion for the cause of liberty.

During law school, I worked as a student attorney in both the Anoka and Ramsey County offices of the Public Defender. While there, I witnessed how intimidating and confusing the legal system can be for those without proper representation. It is my conviction that the legal system should be available to everyone. I strive to facilitate that ideal through passionate advocacy on behalf of my clients.

In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, collecting vinyl records, playing guitar, and spending time with my lovely wife Megan and my son Thomas. I also enjoy reading fiction and studying the ways in which economics and human action affect public policy.
