I have served as a Director on the Kirkwood School Board since my election in April, 2019. In addition, I currently serve as the Secretary of the Board of Directors of Places for People, a St. Louis non-profit which supports families and individuals dealing with severe mental health and co-occurring disorders. I am also the Secretary of the Embark Foundation, a non-profit advancing the welfare of dogs and other companion animals.
My law practice focuses on representing workers to protect their retirement savings against inappropriate fees and investments. I also represent a biotech startup, having helped it grow from an idea to a 40-employee brand.
I graduated from the University of Illinois (Economics), University of Missouri (Law), and New York University (Masters of Law), and I used to be a professional soccer referee.
My family and I attend church at The Gathering and have opened our house to our rescue-dog, Sally, three chickens, a parakeet, several fish, and, for a couple weeks last summer, a three-legged box turtle named Swifty.
