More About Me?

Before becoming an attorney and meeting my partners to found Strategia I graduated from Fairfield University in Connecticut where I played D1 baseball and studied to become a high school social studies teacher. I minored in Studio Art and taught myself to play guitar. I have two beagle/basset brothers named Herman and Stanley.

What I Love

Baseball (I'm a diehard Cubs fan, as if there was any other kind). Music. Graphic Design. Constitutional Law. Helping entrepreneurs. Education reform. Technology.

Work Hard. Find your "why."

Despite being young I've learned several important lessons that I'd like to share with you: work hard because "luck" has a way of finding those who do, always ask yourself "why" when you have a goal and before you take action - communicate your why to others, never pass up an opportunity to be a mentor and receive mentorship, and GIVE BACK.

Ready To Go

I have been blessed by being surrounded by others who have led by example and have pushed me to not be afraid of the unknown and to take advantage of opportunities when the present themselves. I'm ready to get to work for you and help you do the same.

Project Details

When an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
