My favorite summer getaway is Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.

My advice for anyone considering becoming a lawyer is to work as an intern or as a paralegal for a law firm to help guide your decision.

My favorite activity with my family is traveling to the beach or mountains.

When I was young, I wanted to be a writer.

When it comes to practicing law, the three main rules are integrity, zealously represent your clients and be an effective communicator.

My personal motto is get comfortable getting uncomfortable. I try to do something daily to get out of my comfort zone.

My life would not be the same without my incredible wife and two daughters. They are the best part of my life.

If I could have just one super power, I would want the ability to
fly anywhere in the world and experience different cultures.

When I get home from a long day at the office, the first thing I do is
kiss my wife and kids and catch up on their day.

My morning routine always includes water, black coffee and some form
of exercise.

My favorite author is Ryan Holiday. His book, The Obstacle Is the Way,
is an incredible read.

The one material possession I simply could not live without is my phone.

If I could invent anything, it would be a time machine.

My favorite subject in school was always any English course.

Places I like to eat my lunch in Newport News are Aromas and Taste—
close to work and always good food.

My favorite ice cream flavor is anything with chocolate.
