Industry/Job Title: Attorney – Business Law and Litigation

What he does: I always knew I wanted to be a lawyer, because I had so much fun finding loopholes get out of trouble with my parents and school administration. I went to UConn Business in Storrs to get my accounting degree, because I thought that it would prepare me to be a better business. I doubled down at UConn Law in Hartford, and I absolutely loved it. I’ve been working at OAM since my second year of law school, working primarily in business law, but also handling a lot of real estate, insurance and personal injury cases.

Future Aspirations:
I love this area and I want to be a part of the growth and future of downtown Hartford, which is a passion shared by the partners at my firm. Selfishly, I’m hoping this will lead me to develop strong business relationships in the greater Hartford region. I would love to someday be a “hub” that helps connect intelligent, ambitious people to do great things for Hartford and the surrounding area. I also hope that I’ll be able to use my legal knowledge to facilitate important businesses endeavors and projects in and around Hartford.

Of all the muppets, I most identify with: Cookie Monster. Like me, he struggles with self control and has a passion for desserts. But also like me, he’s friendly and recently learned to control his sweet tooth (he eats fruit before downing cookies now, in case you haven’t been watching).
