One-Line Bio

Dog lover, runner, pirate, lawyer, unabashed carnivore, tattoo enthusiast and admitted asshole.


I grew up in Painesville, Ohio, which is about 30 miles east of Cleveland. I currently reside in a small town near Columbus, Ohio.

I fancy myself socially liberal and fiscally conservative (how novel, I know). With apologies to John Grisham, I favor the individual over government, yet I favor the environment over everything. Go figure. I find nothing hypocritical about the fact that I'm a carnivore who loves animals.

I am a graduate of the two finest universities in the world: Miami University and the University of Notre Dame. I'm a lawyer who only sort of practices. This is where I can write for me (and you, to be completely honest).
