Screenshot_2015-12-24-18-01-02_1_1How long have you been a member of the Austin Bar and what is your favorite thing about the organization?

I’ve been a member since 1995-1996. All of the relationships I have I’ve made through the Austin Bar.

What do you like most about being in the legal field?

I like helping people with their issues. I like finding a resolution or the best reasonable outcome for people.

If you weren’t a lawyer what would you be?

I’d want to be an astronaut. I have always loved sci-fi and space.

What’s the craziest job (other than lawyer) that you’ve had?

I was a warehouse worker in Dallas while I studied for the bar exam.

If you were a character in a movie or a TV show, which character would you be?

I’d be Lt Commander Ron Hunter (played by Denzel Washington) in Crimson Tide.

As part of the #austinbarinaction campaign, how are you making your world a better place to be?

I take an overall perspective of ‘How can I help’ no matter how big or small, when and where I am in the community or in society as a whole.
