What is your favorite thing about the law?
I'm a big fan of history, so I've always enjoyed the historical aspects of the law. For me, understanding when and why a particular law came to be is an essential part of fully understanding it.
What community projects are you involved in?
I serve as a trustee on the Wayne Reynolds Scholarship Foundation, which grants college scholarships to junior golfers in Georgia. I also work as a volunteer rules official for golf tournaments around the state, including Georgia State Golf Association events and various college tournaments.
What was your first job?
My first job was at a clothing store in my hometown called Smith and Davis. Soon after that, though, I found my dream job at a driving range. I worked there for about three years through high school cutting grass, picking up golf balls, working on clubs, and helping customers.
What are your hobbies?
I like to Scuba dive, play guitar, and read. I also try to play golf as often as I can (which is not nearly enough!).
What advice would you give to a young student in law school?
Like most things, law school is a process. Embrace the process and you will find success. Read the assigned cases, go to class, and make your own outlines. But, more importantly, make sure that you make time for family, friends, and yourself a part of the process on a regular basis.
What is your favorite lawyer joke?
I don't know, I have never heard any jokes about lawyers...
How do you define a good day?
Any day I spend with my family is a good day. But, a really good day would start with a morning bike ride with my son, followed by an afternoon on the beach, a good seafood dinner, and, finally a funny movie.
