Guilty Pleasure Baseball, by far — specifically watching too much MLB-TV.
Vita 41; born in Ahoskie; bachelor’s and law degrees from Wake Forest University; married with two children and a rescue dog, Copper.
Memorable case I represented a large fishing tournament in a lawsuit brought by a team that had been disqualified. The team caught the biggest fish, but one of its members did not have a fishing license, which was required by the rules. The case went all the way to the North Carolina Supreme Court. The appellate courts adopted a standard for interpreting competition rules that is very deferential to hosts, something that was very important to our client and others in its position.
What he’d be if not a lawyer All of the men in my family for the last couple hundred years have been farmers in Hertford and Bertie counties, so I suppose that would be the likely choice.
Favorite place I have a small fishing boat, but on nice days, I can leave Bogue Inlet and take it offshore. I have no cellphone service in the Gulf Stream, and I can focus on chasing big fish.
Recent reading Hemingway is my favorite, and I am working my way through some of the last few books of his that I have missed. I recently completed Islands in the Stream and To Have and Have Not, and A Moveable Feast for the second time.
Passions Eastern North Carolina; Demon Deacon athletics; my workout group; baseball; hunting and fishing; family; faith.
Don’t ask him to Miss my morning workout. I’d be grumpy all day!
