Three years after graduation from Boston University School of Law, I have yet to practice white-bread law. Making business law and specifically the LLC with its flexible tax structure and protection combo my professional focus, has effectually swept me up in the world of the entrepreneur. The LLC is the most amazing vehicle within which to build a business. Building a businesses, whether mine or other peoples' is the most amazing experience of my least it is a close second to the business of building a family.

I have basically done three different types of work, and these three types of work seem to compliment my two different types of education. My three different types of work are:1) Project Management: 2) Business Development:3) Marketing:

I have found that you need a passion and project management has filled that void. At Western Wats and Trinacle LC I have had the wonderful experience of bringing ideas and concepts to life. Trinacle and Peak Freedom have been wonderful opportunities for me to build my business development skills where I have been able to seek partners for strategic alliances, raise capital, and manage employees. When Winsor Law Firm and Anderson Business Advisors hired Peak Freedom to market and build their firms, I was horrified. Both situations seemed monumental. Looking back, the successes I had were monumental. I gave over 60 speeches for Anderson Business Advisors pushing their products and services. With Winsor Law Firm, I was able to secure partnerships with two of Phoenix's largest employee associations.

All in all, it has been a great ride. The psychology and legal educations have been wonderful compliments to my professional experiences. I look forward to more business building and spending a lot of quality time with my wife Ashleigh and two boys!
