A Phoenix Native, I received my BA in Literature at Claremont McKenna College, and my J.D. from Arizona State University. With my education under my belt, I departed for the beautiful island of Samoa where I worked with several federal agencies on legislative development and human rights initiatives, and where I met my wife, Skye. After two years in Samoa, I left for Santiago, Chile, where I worked as a University professor for a year before returning to the States. From 2007-2009 I put my time in as a US Federal Government employee, working as a Peace Corps Recruiter in charge of the largest geographic territory in the US. Skye and I moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina in early 2010 where I built a successful internet-based indie music label representing over 100 artists, as well as a comprehensive-service SEO company. We have returned to my hometown to live, which I am delighted about! I am also a luthier, a photographer, amateur chef, triathlete, marathon runner and avid gardener.
