When I’m not working, I love the outdoors: camping, hiking, biking, and the shooting sports. I’m an avid sports fan.  You can often catch me at Spartan games or in Detroit at a game. I also coach boys and girls track at Notre Dame Preparatory in Pontiac, Michigan.

  • People v Lee (2018): on appeal, successfully eliminated a 5-year probation term from client’s sentence.
