I was born and raised in the greater Seattle area. I did my undergraduate work at the University of Washington (earning a degree in Business Administration) and my graduate work at the University of Puget Sound (now Seattle University Law School).
I am admitted to practice in all of the state courts of Washington, the U.S. Western District Court of Washington, the U.S. Tax Court and the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. I am a member of the Washington State Bar Association, and its Family Law Section.
I provide volunteer services for the King County Bar Association Neighbor Legal Clinic Program (for over 20 years) and the Family Law Information Center in King County Superior Court (Kent).
Some of my hobbies include photography, walking and riding my bicycle.
My wife and I live in Covington, Washington.
