Tell us a little bit about yourself.

Outside of practice, I spend much of my time trying to do my part on the home front. My wife and I have four children, and they keep us busy with artistic and athletic pursuits!

Since joining NABL in 2015, which NABL resources have you used that helped contribute to the advancement of your career?

Starting out, the “Fundamentals of Municipal Bond Law” was (and continues to be) a trusted background resource. I have found the Workshop Bluebooks and NABL committee reports helpful as well.

Earlier this year you encouraged your colleague, Thomas Sandstrom, to join NABL. How did you persuade him to join?

Every public finance practitioner in our firm is a member of NABL. There was no question that Tommy would become a member when he joined our practice group.

As a past attendee at The Institute and The Workshop, what is one new idea you learned and implemented into your practice?

There is no single idea that sticks out, but I have taken to heart the general emphasis on staying diligent in updating best practices. What might have worked yesterday won’t necessarily work today or tomorrow. Stay abreast of your NABL updates!

“Constant Vigilance!”

-Alastor “Mad-Eye” Moody, nay, the imposter Bartemius “Barty” Crouch Jr.

What has been your top pick for a podcast, book, or TV show in the past year?

Our children are of varying ages, but everyone is excited about the new season of “All Creatures Great and Small.” The show is a delight and a welcome escape.
