I am a corporate finance lawyer and partner at Gray Plant Mooty, a firm based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Co-Chair of the firm's Entrepreneurial Services Group. My clients include everything from pure startups, angel and venture backed companies, family and other closely held partnerships, through small cap publicly traded enterprises. My focus and passion is emerging companies where I can make a difference as a trusted advisor. I was born and raised in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, a first rung suburb of Minneapolis. Together with my wife Stacy, we are raising our daughters Olivia and Emily there. My first love is spending time with these three lovely ladies. I also enjoy running, cycling, reading, music and travel.
