The quality I most like in a lawyer is … integrity.

My career high point (so far) has been … assisting the Wilmington Education Improvement Commission in its efforts to improve the educational opportunities for students in the city of Wilmington.

If I weren’t a lawyer, I’d be … a math teacher trying to start a food truck down the beach during summers—a taco truck serving all different tacos: fish tacos, Irish tacos, Italian tacos, Thanksgiving tacos. Nothing but tacos.

My favorite Twitter feed is … @CoachBarney

I can’t believe more people haven’t read … Rockin’ Steady: A Guide to

Nothing cheers me up like … an Eagles win.

If I won the lottery I’d … pay off my mortgage. Then buy a Tesla.
