Where are you from?

I grew up in a suburb just north of Chicago called Evanston.

What was your first job?

In high school, my first job was with Blockbuster.  Unfortunately, the store I worked at closed a few months after I left for college.  The free movie rentals were a solid perk.

What is on your bucket list?

To visit every continent in the world.

Why did you decide to become an attorney?

I studied political science in college and I had no other choice but to go to law school.

Why did you choose your areas of practice?

As a law clerk at Tressler, I always enjoyed insurance coverage work the most.  Aside from the critical thinking involved in analyzing a claim, I liked coverage because I could be exposed to litigation, too.  In addition,  each claim is unique and, in the process, I am able to learn about coverage issues related to variety of underlying disputes.  For example, I have experience with coverage issues related to advertising injury, construction defects, products liability, life sciences, weather perils, sexual abuse, professional liability, terrorism, and cybersecurity.  Exposure to such a diverse array of underlying disputes keeps the job from getting boring or mundane.

What do you like most about Tressler?

The people I work with.  Everybody has a vested interest in helping me grow professionally.

What is your favorite quote from a movie?

“They may take our lives, but they’ll never take our freedom!” – Bravehart

What was the first concert you attended?

Rock the Bells in 2008.  There was no shortage of hip hop legends at that concert, including A Tribe Called Quest, Nas, Pharcyde and the Roots.
