What was your first job?
My first job was Arby’s when I was 14, but my first job out of college was as a reporter covering the University of Tennessee’s sports teams for The Tennessean. Journalism was an excellent precursor to a legal career; I still build relationships and I still write for an audience.

What do you enjoy about being an attorney?
I like that there’s often no objectively correct answer to a given question. That makes advocacy critical: Who can come up with the best arguments for why a dispute should come out a certain way?

Where would we find you on a typical Saturday/Sunday?
I’m likely doing some of the following: starting the day with coffee and an egg sandwich at Mom ‘n ‘em Coffee & Wine; playing pickleball at Sawyer Point; watching the Bengals; and continuing my hunt for Cincinnati’s spiciest food (KungFood Amerasia in Covington has the lead).
