How can your representation make a difference?
We can help provide practical resolutions to incredibly complex problems fraught with emotion.
How do you work with clients?
I listen first, then take a moment to try to better understand our clients’ perspectives.
What value do you deliver to clients?
I’m fairly calm and composed and try to remain that way especially when the opposition is being extremely unreasonable. That’s not to say that I don’t respond, but I try to focus my reactions to where it will matter most.
Where did you grow up?
I am a third-generation Angeleno, on my mother’s side, and the son of a German immigrant, on my father's side. I live in Culver City — it's where I grew up and where my parents served as mayor/city councilman and school board member.
Favorite past time?
I swam competitively from middle school through college (Division 1). Currently, I swim occasionally with Southern California Aquatics (SCAQ), a local Master’s team. I also enjoy cooking, baking and homebrewing beer.
Speak any languages in addition to English?
Favorite book or movie?
My favorite book and film genres are fantasy and historical fiction, and my guilty pleasure is horror.
