I was born in Falls Church, Virginia and raised in Orange County California and Salt Lake City, Utah. I’m married to a great girl named Robin, we have two kids and have had three Bernese Mountain Dogs named Tag, Blaise and now Hudson. I love running, swimming and biking in the summer and skiing in the winter. I’m now a lawyer who wants to write novels, make movies, start a record label and play in a band (in no particular order). This is my blog.

Your comments on any of my posts or pages are always welcome, but please be courteous. For those of you who need an explanation of that concept (you know who you are), this means no personal attacks and no disparaging or ridiculing (as opposed to intelligently critiquing) the beliefs or opinions of others. Those of you who can’t follow this simple rule will have your comments deleted. Thanks.
