|Location:||Fort Wayne, Indiana|
I was born in Wurzburg, Germany, where my father was stationed during the Vietnam War. My parents were both from the Fort Wayne area, so we returned here soon after I was born. I was a 1990 graduate of Snider High School.
While in college, I competed for the Indiana University Racquetball Team. In my final year of competition, the IU men's team finished #3 in the country and I was the individual national champion. You can see my picture in the Faces in the Crowd in the April 21, 1997, issue of Sports Illustrated. I still compete in one or two major tournaments per year, and my current world professional ranking is #32.
My primary areas of practice are business organizations, commercial transactions, real estate, and taxation. I came to practice in these particular areas because of my background in business education; I went to business school at Indiana University majoring in finance and later went on to pass the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) Exam. With my combined education in business, finance, and accounting, I am able to advise clients in multiple areas of a transaction and can often be an asset because of my ability to communicate with and understand the other professionals involved in a business matter.
My wife, Wendy, is a New Haven native, and we have two young girls - Abby born in 2004, and Anna born in 2006.
