Born and raised in Orange County California, I attended undergraduate studies at New York University where I played volleyball for the NYU Violets. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Journalism I attended law school at the University of San Francisco where I spent some time at the Public Defenders Office. I was admitted into the California Bar in 2007. I immediately began practicing law as a solo practitioner before being hired on as General Counsel for Mile Square Surgery Center, Inc. in 2011. I spent 7 years as general counsel in charge of accreditation, compliance and contract negotiation with medical providers, insurance companies and CMS. I have been married to my wife for four years and we have a young son and another boy on the way. I am an avid fan of the Lakers, Angels, Saints and Disney.
