Quant a miAn engineer-turned-attorney, I was a Navy enlisted man, nuclear submarine officer, senior engineer, technical writer and editor, and operations management consultant before attending law school on a full scholarship. Graduating 2nd in a class of 120, I worked as a research attorney for two years for the Michigan Court of Appeals before serving as a regulatory attorney for the Michigan Public Service Commission and then as a specialist for the Oregon Department of Energy.

I grew up as the youngest child of five in an economically challenged household. Had I not enlisted in the Navy and then won an NROTC scholarship, I would probably not have gone to college, as my next two older siblings did not. I did not know any lawyers until I was over 30 years old, a former submarine officer, and was working as a senior engineer -- so I have a lot of insight that lawyers who enter law school right after college can never have.

My biggest strength is creative intelligence -- not just the ability to analyze problems but to come up with new and different ideas for solving those problems. Partly this is a result of having had a full and active life before becoming an attorney at age 43 --- I am not someone who immediately assumes that an expensive legal battle is the best approach to a dispute.

My style is informal and collegial -- I know from having worked at the most menial jobs throughout high school and college that there are plenty of very bright people who don't attain higher education, but who deserve respect for their intelligence and character.
Personal interests:

I'm working hard to learn to grow fruits and vegetables. I like to walk and bicycle as much as possible and to take the train to explore new places. I read widely and like to play chess whenever I can, and when my two cats haven't hidden the pieces.
