I am one of five children and grew up in northern Illinois (and am still a huge fan of Chicago’s pro sports teams). Even though the rest of my family still resides in the Midwest, North Carolina has always felt like home to me since the very first moment I arrived to play college football. I love the beautiful landscapes, the friendly communities, and eating chicken biscuits with sweet tea (I am still an offensive lineman at heart). I apply the same approach that I use to remain close to my family and in sports to my law practice – communicate, make the extra effort, see the big picture and do the little things right. When I am not in the office, I enjoy playing intramural sports, reading, drawing cartoons and spending time at the coast and in the mountains with my wife (a native North Carolinian).
