The most rewarding part
of my job is

solving my
client’s problems.

The most memorable
trip I ever took

was a three-day driving
tour of the Bolivian
salt flats.

My first car was

my mom’s
station wagon.

Successful attorneys

are able to see
a matter from a
wider perspective.

My worst habit

is not eating enough

My favorite food is

anything with tomato sauce.

My favorite place in Oregon

is Smith Rock
while the sun
is setting.

I want to try

climbing Mt. Hood.

I became a lawyer

because I admire how
the law serves
as the central hub
in our society.

My all-time favorite
TV show is

The Wire.

My greatest fear is


One thing I have
learned in life is

there’s always
more to learn.
