I was born in Washington, D.C., and spent the first 10 years of my life on the east coast before moving to Texas in 1990. We settled in League City, Texas, where I went to elementary through high school before attending the University of Texas at Austin. In 2002, I finished my undergraduate education at Baylor University, where I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism with a concentration in Public Relations. In 2006, I obtained my J.D. from the University of Tulsa and was admitted to the Texas Bar in 2007.

My loving and beautiful wife, Jill, is a talented physical therapist. We moved to Austin for the rich history, scenic views, and beautiful weather and enjoy how active and alive the city is. We spend our free time running around Town Lake, checking out the local music and arts scene, and enjoying the local parks and lakes. Golf, barbeques, and watching football are my favorite pastimes.

Being able to represent individuals who have suffered an injury or other loss as a result of the irresponsibility of another was my motivation for going to law school. I love what I do and take pride in the fact that my education and efforts are used for the betterment of our society, for the protection of our laws, and for maintaining the integrity of our civility.
