I am a  New Jersey native, from Long Beach Island, NJ.  I attended Towson University, where I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Political Science, graduating with honors. While attending Towson, I pursued my passion for sports by playing on the Towson Ice Hockey Team.  I moved to South Florida in 2007 to attend Nova Southeastern Shepard Broad Law School, where I obtained a Juris Doctor, cum laude. During law school, I was a member of Law Review and I was a Merit Scholarship recipient.  In my second year of law school, I received an award for the highest grade in Constitutional Law II.

During law school, I had the pleasure of interning for the Attorney General's Office of Florida, Economic Crimes Division.  While there, I gained valuable experience in areas relating to economic fraud and fair and deceptive trade practices.

I am licensed to practice law in both Florida and New Jersey. I have also worked as an associate at an insurance defense firm, whose primary client was one of the largest auto insurance companies in the country.  It was here where I witnessed insurance companies prioritizing money over people.
