What do you love about Nixon Peabody?
One of my favorite things about Nixon Peabody is the firm’s approach to teamwork and collaboration. I enjoy working together with my colleagues to develop solutions for our clients. Being based in Providence, I like working in an office that is close knit with the benefit of having international resources across a broad range of practice areas.

What was your first job?
I worked at the public library in my hometown starting when I was fourteen. So, come to me with your questions about the Dewey decimal system.

What book has influenced you the most and why?
Several books have influenced my life in various ways. One of them was “Moneyball,” which highlighted the importance of not complacently accepting the status quo, questioning traditional measures of value and finding your competitive advantage.

What is your favorite travel destination and why?
I lived in New Zealand for a year prior to starting law school. I worked as a sous chef at a restaurant on Waiheke Island (near Auckland, off the coast of the North Island) and as an apple picker near Motueka (on the South Island). Moving to a foreign country with not much other than a work visa and successfully integrating myself into the community was an incredible experience that I continue to take lessons from. San Sebastian, Spain has been my favorite vacation destination.

What is something most people don’t know about you?
I like to cook and collect vinyl records.
