BIO
I graduated from Kenyon College in 1976 with a B.A. in both anthropology and psychology, and followed up
at the University of Cincinnati, receiving my Masters in Anthropology in 1979. I worked at the Cincinnati
Museum of Natural History as their staff archaeologist and as a Regional Preservation Archaeologist for
the State of Ohio from 1978 to 1980. I then decided to forgo the field work of archaeology, and returned to
law school and received my law degree from the University of Cincinnati in 1984.  After graduating I clerked
for one year with Judge Robert L. Black in Ohio's First District Court of Appeals after which I became a full
time litigator as an assistant city prosecutor for the City of Cincinnati, prosecuting felony preliminary
hearings and misdemeanor trials for the next three years.  For the next twenty one years I worked for
Nationwide Insurance Company as an in house trial attorney.  I was the first attorney, and employee, hired
in the Cincinnati Office, and actually set up the civil litigation defense practice.  I have since practiced
before the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, Ohio’s First District Court of Appeals, and I have stood before
Ohio’s Supreme Court.  I have taken in excess of one hundred cases to jury verdict and consider myself a
seasoned litigator.  I retired from Nationwide in the summer of 2009 to open up a solo law practice and
pursue my many other interests including alternative energy sources, sustainable farming practices,
beekeeping, and writing.
