Summary

I was born and raised in Fort Wayne, Indiana, attending Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, where I majored in Political Science and graduated with honors.

While attending law school, I was actively involved with the Moot Court Board, serving as the Moot Court Board Chairman. I received several awards in law school, including the prestigious Leadership Achievement Award, the Frank Harper Achievement Award, and the Moot Court Board Chairman Awards.

After graduating law school, I was a certified legal intern with the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office, in the Narcotics Division, until I became a Deputy Prosecuting Attorney in 2009. During my tenure at the Prosecutor’s office, I started as Deputy Prosecuting Attorney in Misdemeanor Court, was promoted to the D Felony division, and was again promoted to be one of the two Gang prosecutors in 2011. I was then assigned as a Major Felony Drug Prosecutor, a position I held until being promoted to Major Felony Division. During my time in Major Felony, I maintained an active caseload of murder, robbery, attempt murder, and aggravated battery cases. I left the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office in the fall of 2015 for private practice in the areas of criminal law, family law, and general litigation.

I also served with the 101st Airborne/Air Assault Division located at Fort Campbell, Kentucky and the 2nd Infantry Division in South Korea. In 2011, I re-joined the Indiana Army National Guard as a First Lieutenant in the Judge Advocate General (JAG) Corp . In 2012, I was deployed to Kuwait with the 38th Sustainment Brigade in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. In 2019, I again deployed to Kuwait with the 38th Infantry Division in support of Operation Spartan Shield. I am now a Major in the Indiana Army National Guard and I'm currently assigned as the Chief of Military Justice with the 38th Infantry Division in Indianapolis, Indiana.

I am currently an attorney with Avnet Law in Noblesville, IN.
