I was born and raised in Denver, Colorado.
I did not stray far from home for my
education, attending the University of
Colorado at Denver and Denver University
Law School. I joined Butt Thornton & Baehr
in 1989 and have been a shareholder since
1995. I am listed in the 2016 Best Lawyers
in New Mexico for expertise in insurance
defense. I am an avid golfer and fly
fisherman. I enjoy youth sports, having
coached for more than fifteen years. I am
happily married with three beautiful children.
