Background: Graduated from Centenary College, worked for the Wesley Foundation at Louisiana Tech, received master's of biblical studies from Dallas Theological Seminary, played for men's golf team at both SMU and Centenary, married to wife Ashley, member of the Louisiana Law Review as a junior associate during his second year and on the board of editors during his third year.

Why Law School:  After finishing my theological degree at Dallas Theological Seminary I was certain that ministry was not the right vocational path for me-but I loved school.  I had always been interested in the idea of going to law school, and my wife was gracious enough to allow me the privilege of pursuing a latent dream.

Why LSU Law: Ashley and I were pretty certain that we wanted to come back home to Louisiana after being away a couple years for graduate school, and I was told by several people that if you want to practice law in Louisiana, LSU is a must.

The Faculty: I had the privilege of getting to know several of the faculty members at LSU on a personal level. I was amazed with how encouraging and personable the faculty was. I had the privilege of taking four classes with Professor Randy Trahan, and he has had a lasting effect on the way that I think and analyze legal issues. I am very grateful to the faculty at LSU.

Career Goals: I have accepted a job in Corporate & Securities at Jackson Walker in Dallas, Texas. I feel that LSU has prepared me for the challenges ahead through its rigorous academic program and by the formative relationships that I was able to establish with both the faculty and my peers.
