I was raised in Albuquerque and Tijeras, and played baseball for the University of New Mexico. During law school, I worked for a prominent local personal injury firm where I developed my passion for civil litigation. I have been selected as a Southwest Super Lawyer Rising Star in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020.

When not working, I enjoy an active home and outdoor life with my wife and two daughters. I am a proud Lobo supporter. I also enjoy participating in philanthropic activities, including assisting the homeless, cleaning youth baseball fields in the spring, sporting a mustache in November for men’s health awareness, and defending SANE Nurses in pre-trial interviews.
