Lawyer, Thinker, and Maker in Annapolis, Maryland
I am an attorney that crafts novel solutions to difficult problems. I have a long record of success providing advice and counsel on a wide variety of legal and management issues to: clients in private practice; federal, state and local governments and academia. I am a veteran drummer from the DC - Baltimore punk rock scene, former drum circle facilitator and prone to spontaneous music making on whatever instrument I can get my hands on.
An engineer by temperament and creator by nature, I love solving puzzles, bringing order to chaos and turning ideas into reality. I started learning how to program computers in the mid 1980s on my university's PDP-10 (DEC 10) mainframe and graduated with a degree in philosophy. After law school and many years of practicing law, I returned to programming, working on web development and mobile apps.
Now, I combine my passion for computers, creativity as a musician and skills as a lawyer, leading a company exploring and developing software based solutions to compliance, risk management and other problems arising at the intersection of law and technology.
