A few decades ago, I was born into a family that traveled the country painting bridges. I switched schools over a dozen times and lived in 15 states before graduating high school in Vancouver, Washington. I loved to wrestle back then. I took second in the state championships in 2008 for Hockinson High School. The next year I broke my neck in the last match I ever wrestled while at the state tournament. After high school I worked as a sandblaster and painter on bridges during breaks to pay for college.
College and Work. While in college, I got a scholarship to study in Germany where I met my wife. I lived in Europe for a few years and we eventually moved back to Vancouver. Upon returning, I worked as a project manager in the construction industry for several years on complex multi-million dollar public works infrastructure projects with various state departments of transportation and the Army Corps of Engineers. I managed dozens of employees and fought tooth and nail to keep our projects on track.
Law School. After having first hand experience in a number of contract, employment, and labor disputes, I decided to go to law school at Gonzaga so I would have the skills to help contractors who face similar problems. I finished as the top student in many of my commercial law classes, and third in my class overall. After graduating, I earned a prestigious clerkship at the Washington State Supreme Court where I drafted several opinions under Justice Susan Owens. Wanting to serve the construction industry that I spent much of my life in, I immediately opened my own practice after clerking.
Me today. I’ve been lucky that my life has been filled with lots of interesting people, places, and stories: below are a few pictures from it (click on photos to read the stories). I like spending time with my family, golfing, watching comedy, rooting for the Seahawks (and Vikings too), making wood fired pizza, and learning new languages.
