Born near the end of Generation X, I came of age alongside the technology we now take for granted. I exchanged spiral-bound notebooks at St. Xavier High School for computer labs at the University of Cincinnati. As a student at Notre Dame Law School, I dutifully took notes using a folding keyboard connected to my PDA. I had a PC at my desk from day one as a young lawyer.

 

Convinced that technology would disrupt the practice of law, in 2007 I joined SpliceNet, a technology consulting company. For 14 years, I consulted on line-of-business applications, built servers, migrated businesses to “the cloud,” earned coveted certifications from Sophos, LexisNexis, and Microsoft, and eventually focused on keeping computer systems secure in an increasingly-dangerous world.

 

In August of 2021, I left SpliceNet, where I had ultimately become a shareholder, to begin a new journey with Buckingham, Doolittle & Burroughs, LLC. Buckingham has served businesses in the Cleveland, Akron and Canton areas for over 100 years. Now, as part of that family, I passionately provide “white glove treatment” for cybersecurity, data privacy and technology law issues to businesses of all sizes across Northeast Ohio.

 

I live in Lakewood with my wife, my two daughters, and two dogs. I spent years training in mixed martial arts, including Muay Thai kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and Kali. Now my free time is less intense, spent fishing or working with hobby electronics.
