What do you like most about your practice area?

I never believed my admin law professors, but it really is true: administrative law encompasses the practice of every other kind of law. On any given day, I could be working on constitutional law, criminal law, contract law, and any other area of law that may come up. Sometimes it's frustrating when I have several projects from across the legal practice spectrum come in all at once, but I love learning about areas I have not worked in a lot.

Outside of the law, what are your hobbies?

I love to cook, and I do so almost every night. Working in the kitchen is a great way to clear my mind and focus on something creative.

My wife and I went to Italy shortly after we got married. We traveled to Rome, Florence, and Venice. I loved soaking in the culture, the history, the art, and of course the food!

What's the most random job you've ever had?

In college I...
