I am a lawyer, husband, father of four children, and die-hard Green Bay Packers fan. I currently live in Saint Paul, Minnesota, but will soon be moving to Santiago de Chile.
While I was attending law school at Georgetown University in the mid-1990s, I had promised myself that I would never actually practice law. Or if I did, I would not be a litigator. Accordingly, after graduating in 1998, I became a practicing lawyer and worked as an antitrust litigator at firms in Portland, Oregon and Minneapolis, Minnesota. I also did a brief stint as an Assistant Attorney General for the State of Minnesota. In 2006, I became a partner in the Minneapolis office of a national litigation firm, where I was counsel on various antitrust matters involving the computer software industry.
Before law school, I had studied Latin American history as an undergraduate student at the University of Chicago and graduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. At the former school I was a leftist radical, while at the latter I was a conservative reactionary–even though my ideological and philosophical outlook remained rather consistent throughout.
