Favorite music
’90s grunge and alternative rock

46; born in Carson City, Nev.; bachelor’s from Georgetown University and law degree from New York University; married to wife, Jane, with daughters, Eleanor and Beatrice, dog, Cami, and cat, Sam.
Why he chose to specialize in this field
Bankruptcy practice requires a combination of litigation and negotiation skills. Bankruptcy often requires quick decision-making, even where the disposition of millions of dollars in assets is involved. Reaching a workout in a bankruptcy matter, which often involves multiple participants with different goals, is extremely rewarding.
What he’d be if not a lawyer
A Shakespearean actor. I performed in several productions throughout high school and college.
Best advice received
The simple story is best.
Favorite place
Carmel, Calif. I love the California coast from Big Sur to Monterey Bay. I have a particular soft spot for the sea otters that live in the bay!
Favorite book
The Great Gatsby. I have always found it to be a unique commentary on the American experience.
Favorite movie
The Godfather I and II. It’s a great story told over two movies.
My family is heavily involved in ballet. Both of my daughters dance, and my wife is on the board of Carolina Ballet. I was hooked the first time my wife took me to a performance. We are lucky to have a ballet company of Carolina Ballet’s caliber here in North Carolina.
