I BECAME A LAWYER BECAUSE
I have always been a strong analytical
thinker able to process large volumes
of complex information, and I desired
a career where I could use those skills
to help others achieve their goals.
MY GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENT
AS A LAWYER HAS BEEN rapidly
transitioning my professional skills
from the internet technology sector to
the aviation sector.
THE BEST ADVICE I HAVE FOR NEW
LAWYERS IS to never forget that so much
in life depends on their reputation.
THE MOST REWARDING PART OF MY
JOB IS helping clients navigate the
complexities of the aviation sector.
I KEEP UP WITH LEGAL NEWS AND
DEVELOPMENTS BY reading numerous
publications, attending CLEs and
conferences, and communicating with
those in my network.
I LOOK UP TO my parents—they have
given me all of their love, taught me the
rights and wrongs in life, and encouraged
me in the pursuit of my dreams.
I ABSOLUTELY CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT
constantly challenging myself, both
intellectually and physically.
MY BEST RECIPE I MAKE AT HOME IS
I CREATE WORK/LIFE BALANCE
BY minimizing wasted time in my
personal life and maximizing time
spent on what is important to me.
MY FITNESS ROUTINE INVOLVES
cardio in the morning and lifting
weights at night, every single day.
MY FAVORITE PLACE IN THE PACIFIC
NORTHWEST IS North Cascades
THIS IS ON MY BUCKET LIST:
Summiting Mt. Rainier.
MY WORST HABIT IS drinking too
MY BEST HABIT IS maintaining an
active and healthy lifestyle.
AN ITEM I WILL NEVER THROW OUT
IS my Black’s Law Dictionary, gifted by
my dad on my first day of law school.
MY IDEA OF MISERY IS not living life
to the fullest.
MY MOTTO IS “you can have results
or excuses, not both.”
YOU’LL FIND ME OUTSIDE IN THE
NORTHWEST DOING THIS: exploring
new trails and hiking old favorites.
IF I COULD PICK A SUPERPOWER, I T
WOULD BE teleportation.
