What area of law do you practice and why?
Corporate. I like learning new businesses and products and their component parts.

What are you currently working on?
Acquisitions and collaborations. Typically, my deals are in a combination of private equity/financial services and healthcare/life sciences (and that is true right now).

How do you spend your free time?
I coach my sons in baseball and basketball during the school year and we race sailboats and play tennis in the summer.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received on what it takes to be a great lawyer?
You can always improve your writing. Always.

What does it take to succeed at Kaye Scholer?
There is no single path. We have a full spectrum of personalities, backgrounds and approaches, but the common ground is found in continuing to improve your skills and understanding the clients’ businesses.

Where did you go on your most recent vacation?
It’s summer, so my most recent vacation spot was Beach Haven, NJ.

What’s playing on your iPod?
At this very moment, it is stuck on Young Rising Sons, but until yesterday I was nostalgically listening to Fleetwood Mac for a week straight. I have no idea why.
