I grew up in a suburb of Boston. My father was an electrician and my mother worked as a florist. I attended Brandeis University, just outside of Boston, then moved to New Orleans to attend Law School of at Tulane University. I moved to the Bay Area in 1992 and married my college sweetheart. We have two school age daughters. I have lived in the East Bay ever since I moved to California. When I am not working on legal matters for my clients I enjoy making music. I sing- blues and classic rock- and I have been teaching myself harmonica for the last four years. I also build and fix things in my home (garage) woodworking shop.
