While growing up, I had the pleasure to spend many summers in Florida were I developed an appreciation for boating Florida's waterways. These positive experiences influenced my decision to attend the United States Merchant Marine Academy, a federal service academy. While at the Academy, I had the opportunity to work on container ships, boom ships, and a LASH ship. Upon graduating and receiving a USCG license, I gained valuable experience working as a marine engineer aboard research vessels, ATBs and tug boats. I also had the privilege to serve as an officer in the US Navy Reserve.

After a few years working on the water, I pursued a legal education from The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law. Upon graduating and passing the bar, I started practicing Maritime and Admiralty Law at a Florida law firm. After a few years, I transitioned my practice to a national firm to gain experience in additional areas of litigation.

With over a decade of experience working at large law firms in the Tampa area, I have handled large and small cases. Cases that have involved legal issues in the areas of personal injury, insurance disputes, government contracts, landlord/tenant, professional liability, property damages and maritime law.

I look forward to providing individuals and small businesses, which appreciate and depend on the waterways of Tampa Bay, and Florida, the benefits of my experience. Contact me to discuss how I might help you address your legal issues.
