If you did not practice law, what would you do?

"If I didn't practice law, I'd do what everyone wants to do: be a musician or in the movies. But I'm neither talented nor attractive enough to do either."


What was your first job?

"I worked as a dairy clerk at Shoppers Food Warehouse at Fair City Mall in Fairfax during the day and bussed tables at a bar/restaurant in Annandale at night. I actually was pretty good at both of those jobs."


If you could choose a superpower, what would you chose?

"I would choose the ability to predict the future. Is that an officially recognized superpower? If not, then probably invisibility."


Favorite class in law school?

"Is that a serious question? I took an undergraduate acting class during my third year that probably helped me in the practice of law more than any other class. I guess evidence was helpful, too."  


Name one thing we would be surprised to learn about.

"I was the drum major in my high school marching band."


Why did you choose to donate money/time to the Fairfax Law Foundation?

"I do a lot of work with juveniles in the court system. I participate in the Devonshire Program speaking to students to hopefully help them make better decisions by thinking of the real-life consequences of actions."


Who is legal practitioner that has had the biggest impact on your legal career and why?

"My partner, Steve Webster, has had the biggest impact on my legal career. We both worked for a large firm then formed Webster Book LLP in 2005 while having lunch at Tippy's Taco House. He is the smartest and most creative trial lawyer I know. Truly amazing to see him in action in court. We both were lucky enough to be mentored by Grayson Hanes, who is a legend."
