I am a financial services lawyer with strong experience in derivatives, repo, securities lending, structured finance and other capital markets transactions.
My joint JD/MBA degree has proven to be a potent skills combination throughout my career enabling me to assist teams, leaders and organizations in planning and exceeding their goals. It's work that I love to do and it would be a pleasure to help you achieve your goals.

I first developed my drive for excellence and getting the job done in the U.S. Army where I enlisted as a combat communications soldier at 17. Today I thrive on delivering exceptional results efficiently with the least impact on business, resources and personnel. I take pride in being the solutions-oriented, go-to and can-do lawyer that clients turn to for help.
