About

I was born and raised in Seattle, attending Roosevelt High School. During the summers I had a number of jobs including a ride operator ("carny") at the Seattle center and a warehouse worker at Safeway. Following high school, I left Seattle for Los Angeles where I attended UCLA as an undergraduate from where I graduated early as an economics and political science major and left to travel.  I was accepted into Boston University Law School and worked in Washington DC for two summers; the first for the Peace Corp in an administrative capacity evaluating recruiting techniques for high demand skills, and the second for the Federal Power Commission on a special home energy conservation program.  My time in Washington DC coincided with Watergate and Nixon's resignation and was quite exciting.  Following law school I returned to Seattle and after passing the bar, cut my teeth on the construction litigation surrounding the Kingdome.  After three and a half years I took leave of the practice of law and traveled for one year around the world with my wife.  I have been engaged in the active practice of law since my return.  Following my return, my wife and I raised two great kids who are now young adults.   I continue to be interested in travel and have enjoyed a number of adventures.  I enjoy many sports including skiing.  I collect wine.  I continue to enjoy the practice of law and my clients.
