What are your goals in your role at your company?
As a new member trial attorney, I am focused on providing clients with exceptional, cost-effective legal services. Additionally, I am regularly involved with helping associate attorneys to develop professionally and learn how they can make a positive impact in our community.

What are your goals for your community involvement?
After numerous volunteer and leadership roles in the community since 2013, I’m taking a breather for my wedding this summer. Then I intend to dive back into the fray in 2018 in a big way.

What’s your biggest passion, and why?
My passions are new experiences and food. I had the opportunity to do a bit of travel in 2016. My fiancee, Erica Dole, and I visited Washington, D.C., New York City, Utah, Idaho, California, North and South Carolina, Nova Scotia and the Dominican Republic. We ate our way through each destination.

What is it that drives you?
Making the most of each opportunity that life or work provides. I believe if something is worth doing, it’s worth giving your all. In addition, I have been fortunate to find myself surrounded by exceptional people and leaders who provide additional fuel and motivation to always challenge myself.

What are your future aspirations? 
I believe childhood education is very important. In the future, I would like to devote more of my time and energy to such causes and/or programs.
