His experience includes four years of practice with a large NYC law firm, and as a shareholder at a large Michigan law firm.

He returned to college in the late 1990's and was a full-time student in Computer Information Systems at the University of Michigan - Dearborn. While there, he met and became friends with Professor Thomas Callahan, a professor in the School of Management and a Ph.D. researcher.
