My first real job out of college, right after spending a year living in Brazil teaching English, was working at a backpacking/mountaineering store in Tulsa, Oklahoma. One of my first tasks in my new job was to spend the afternoon setting up tents. I remember thinking, I must have pulled the wool over someone’s eyes?! This job gave me the leeway, and the discounts on gear, to hone my skills climbing and engaging in light mountaineering. Just before leaving that job to attend the University of Tulsa College of Law, two friends and I summited Pico de Orizaba in Mexico.
After graduating from law school I practiced law in Denver, Colorado for 14 years. The last seven I owned my own law practice, specializing in business transactional law as well as criminal defense litigation. Today my work is as a Christian Science Practitioner, and I currently serve as the Christian Science Committee on Publication for Colorado. My wife and I have two small children. When I’m able to carve out some free time, I enjoy swimming and running. I am grateful for the opportunity to support The Link School!
