BIO
Growing up in rural Idaho, I learned very early in life how difficult it can be for rural communities to obtain professional services. Though law school took me away from my mountain roots temporarily while I pursued the studies needed to obtain a Doctorate in Law, I am excited to be able to bring that education back to north Idaho. Over the years I have been actively involved in various wildlife and conservation-related organizations, including founding the Gonzaga Rod & Gun Club and serving as a state Hunter's Education instructor. In addition to my passion for the outdoors, I share an equivalent interest in providing opportunities for youth in my community, leading me to serve on the Board of the North Idaho Official's Association, the President for both the Rotary and Kiwanis clubs in the Silver Valley, and the chair of the District 1 Idaho Association of Counties.

 

In my free time, I enjoy fly-fishing in high mountain streams, hiking in the backcountry with my wife and two children, hunting with my labrador retrievers, and officiating basketball.  I firmly believe that reinvesting in the youth of our society is the key to a sustainable future and volunteering in our communities is just one of the ways we can use the gifts that God gives us to make this world a better place.

EDUCATION

BIO

Coming from a multi-generational Silver Valley family, I am excited to be able to bring my law degree back home where I am from. Becoming a lawyer was a childhood dream that manifested itself through a one-track mindset in pursuing a law degree at Gonzaga University. After spending my first few years of practice in an urban environment in Spokane, Washington,  I longed to return to my small rural community of Shoshone County. Joining the firm at Silver Valley Law has helped me make this dream a reality. 

 

With my free time, I enjoy hiking the vast terrain of the Pacific Northwest, finding rural hot springs to soak in, officiating high school volleyball, and making elaborate charcuterie boards. I value spending quality time with my family and friends, and enjoy exploring community events throughout north Idaho where the unique historic roots of our small towns are highlighted. My aussie doodle, Justice, joins me on my daily adventures and with specialized training, doubles as our office support staff. I am specifically invested in the rehabilitative aspects of the legal system, including specialty courts, and hope to see them as a viable alternative to reducing criminal offenses in our communities. In the coming years, I look forward to using my law degree to make a positive impact on the rural north-Idaho that I love, so that others can experience the small-town upbringing that I did for generations to come.

Education:

Political Science & Philosophy, Idaho State University, 2015

BIO

I grew up originally in Las Vegas, Nevada where I spent the formative years of my life around people of all different backgrounds and passions. I spent most of my youth playing sports - culminating in a collegiate career in rugby at the University of Nevada, Reno. I was raised to have a deep and profound respect for the law with a father who served as a Las Vegas Metro Police Officer. I am currently enrolled at the University of Idaho College of Law in Moscow, Idaho, where I am expected to graduate in spring of 2025.

 

My wife and I are both heavily involved at our church where my wife plays piano for the younger children and I help the young men in high school with service projects and activities. During our free time, we love exploring the great outdoors of the Pacific Northwest with our lovable Rottweiler, Maggie. While at home, our family enjoys watching classic movies from the golden age of Hollywood, specifically anything with Humphrey Bogart or Gene Kelly. I am very grateful for the opportunity to live in the beautiful Silver Valley and spend my summers serving this historic community.
