I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. I graduated from Vianney High School where I have served as a coach for the summmer baseball program. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Economics from Washington University in 2006 and earned my Juris Doctorate from Saint Louis Univerity in 2009. While in law school, I served as a clerk at David J. Rauscher, P.C. where I first received the opportunity to handle personal injury claims.
