What are your personal interests?

My priority is spending time with my partner, family, and golden retriever Queso. When I’m not watching UT sports, I’m normally grilling out or enjoying some sunlight on a patio.

What led you to bankruptcy?

Financial hardships don’t discriminate and can arrive at unpredictable times. When they do, the resulting impact can seem insurmountable. My undergraduate studies in the midst of the late-2000s financial crisis – specifically on subprime mortgages, default rates, and high interest lending – helped to confirm that in real time. I developed a strong passion for assisting those facing economic difficulties, and I sought to build a practice that fuels that passion and (most importantly) brings relief to people and businesses in my community. Bankruptcy law can be a highly effective tool in providing a much needed fresh start to those in need – especially those victimized by bad-faith creditor practices. It demands equity and fairness amongst both debtors and creditors, involves walking clients through multiple facets of their finances, and requires knowledge in multiple aspects of law – all of which I appreciate.

What is your favorite music and/or artists?

Moon Taxi, Dirty Guv’nahs, tropical house music, yacht rock, soca music. Really anything with a good vibe.
