"I graduated the University of San Diego with a Bachelor of Business Administration and planned to go to law school to become a corporate lawyer. However, once I began law school I found that I looked forward to criminal law and criminal procedure classes more than any others. After law school I moved back to Las Vegas and began working for a criminal defense lawyer. I assisted him on several capital murder cases. I enjoyed being in the court room. I enjoyed assisting those in need. I enjoyed the intellectual challenge of the trial. I still do."
