I grew up in Madison, Wisconsin and attended Harvard College with the aid of a U.S. Navy Reserve Officers Training Corps scholarship. Upon my graduation in 1994, I received an officer’s commission in the U.S. Navy. I entered the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program and served as a nuclear-trained submarine officer aboard two fast-attack submarines based in Connecticut and Hawaii.
I later attended the MBA program at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, receiving my MBA in Finance and Operations in 2001. I spent part of my final semester as a student at the ESADE business school in Barcelona, Spain.
In 2006, I graduated from Harvard Law School, where I served as an editor of the Harvard Law Review.
I spent my first three years of law practice in Milwaukee, Wisconsin as a finance associate at the national law firm of Foley & Lardner LLP.
In 2009, I moved to Albuquerque and joined the law firm of Miller Stratvert P.A. I primarily practiced in the areas of civil litigation and appeals, creditor representation, and utility representation. I became a director/shareholder in 2013 and departed in 2017 to open my solo practice.
I currently maintain law licenses in New Mexico and New York.
I live in Albuquerque with my wife, two children, four rescued dogs, and a remarkable cat.
