I was born and raised in Aurora, Colorado
and learned about finances while working
in my family's business. I gained knowledge
early about commercial transactions when the
family business merged with two others and
was ultimately acquired by a national company.
I decided then that I wanted to become an
attorney. I graduated from the University of
Denver summa cum laude with a double major in
Political Science and History in 1976. I also
attended accounting classes at the University
of Denver Business School and received the
highest grade in my class. I am also the Chair
of the Architectural Control Committee in my
neighborhood, a member and officer of the Board
of my church and the pro bono general counsel
to Teen Challenge of New Mexico. I enjoy hiking,
biking, camping, and fly-fishing with my wife
and two dogs.
