I've worn many hats on my way to becoming a lawyer. I have been a researcher, lab technician, trainer, and consultant. Not exactly adrenaline-fueled positions (believe me), but my experiences have shaped me into who I am now.

 

I spent most of my life in the Midwest. My father was a professional guitarist and my uncle was a vocalist. My mother and sister are also very artistic, and these talents have been passed down to my niece and nephews. I am a product of my environment, and it is because of my family that I have a soft spot in my heart for artists, musicians, innovators, and for outside thinkers.

 

I studied Chemistry at Ball State University where I was a Research Assistant to my physics professor as he developed an innovative nerve damage assessment probe.  After graduation, I managed and coordinated training programs for lab technicians and phlebotomists. After hours I plotted to start a brewery with a longtime friend, but in the midst of a booming craft beer movement,  we missed the boat.

 

My first legal position was as a clerk for a federal bankruptcy judge in Downtown Los Angeles. From there I moved to London to work in-house at PRS for Music, the largest copyright collection agency in the UK which manages musical works on behalf of its over 118,000 members.

 

I later acted as a business and legal consultant to a software startup that facilitated more efficient agriculture practices and use of resources. I helped the company effectively navigate nascent regulations, and I drafted many corporate transactional documents.

 

I became a lawyer as a means to use my background to help the creators and innovators that I respect so much. I am driven by a desire to help bring ideas into reality, and what better place to be than in a state overflowing with creativity?
