About Me.

Hey there! I'm excited to share a bit about myself with you. I grew up in Fayetteville, Arkansas but moved out West to explore my passion for adventure, including mountain climbing, backcountry adventuring, survival, and horseback riding. 

At the age of 15, I left public school to attend the New Mexico Military Institute (NMMI) for high school. I had an absolute blast and decided to stay for junior college. My time at the military school taught me about the importance of leadership, camaraderie, and honor, and I made some of my closest friends there. After graduating from NMMI, I joined the United States Army Reserves (USAR) and served for 14 years, including during Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. I even went to Airborne School!

 

Following my military service, I completed my baccalaureate education at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, where I majored in philosophy and political theory. While at UNM, I was a member of the Lambda Alpha Chi fraternity and spent most weekends exploring the Navajo Reservation and the New Mexico wilderness with my fraternity brothers. I had already fallen in love with the desert from my time at the military school, but my adventures in northern New Mexico and the desert Southwest deepened my affection for the Land of Enchantment.

 

After college, I worked for Honeywell's Defense Avionics Division in Albuquerque before returning to Arkansas to study law. I earned a Juris Doctor from the University of Arkansas School of Law and have been practicing civil and criminal trial law ever since in the law firm my father founded in 1961.

 

All of my experiences have contributed to my fiction writing, which I believe has a unique and authentic voice. My debut novel explores contemporary socio-political discourse through the eyes of a trial lawyer, and I'm currently working on the sequel. I hope to entertain and take readers on a thrilling journey through political and legal dystopias. Thanks for taking the time to learn a bit more about me!
