Although I was not excited about writing assignments as a student, legal writing became my passion. I first found my love for writing as a law clerk for a federal bankruptcy judge, and I have written countless pleadings, briefs and articles throughout my career. I am passionate about the cases and issues, especially the difficult ones. When I am not writing, you can probably find me experimenting with acrylic paint and other art media.
