I spent 8 years operating a small business focused on the commercial drone industry. I was faced with complex issues that only a nascent and dynamic industry like the commercial drone space can provide. I was able to travel the globe to help grow the company and the industry as a whole. This experience is truly invaluable now as a corporate attorney, whether I am working with large companies or entrepreneurs looking to start and grow their own small businesses. Also, as a lifelong athlete and former college lacrosse player I know what it’s like to be part of a great team, whether that’s playing a strong support role for your teammates or taking advantage of opportunities to lead. My totality of experiences provides me the opportunity now to not just provide legal advice to my business clients, but to provide practical and actionable counsel as someone who truly knows what it’s like to be in their position.
