What's the best gift you've ever received?                                                                                                                        Surprisingly, I have told many people this, the best gift I have ever received was an umbrella given to me by the TBA. I always considered buying one but just could never commit to the idea of it raining again.

How do you relax?                                                                                                                                                                        The best place for me to take my mind off work is the gym but nothing is more relaxing then sitting by a body of water.

What was the most indulgent purchase you’ve ever made?                                                                                                           I bought a nice watch after my third year of practice. I'm still cool with it.

If you weren’t a lawyer, what profession would you be?                                                                                                            I'm an entrepreneur at heart. My first business was mowing yards at 12 years old. But...I've always wanted to ride on the back of a garbage truck, seriously.

What is your favorite place in the world?                                                                                                                                  Three-way tie between Thailand, Mykonos, and Prague.

What’s next on your bucket list?                                                                                                                                                Grow my practice and travel to Japan.

What is your biggest pet peeve?                                                                                                                                              When people aren't on time to leave for the airport. That and lack of spatial awareness.

What fictional character do you most relate to? Why?                                                                                                     Benjamin Button. That was one spry old man.

What are three books that influenced your life?                                                                                                                              3 Chinese Brothers, Rich Dad Poor Dad, Where God Was Born
