Why did you start teaching?

Teaching provided a front-door way to much more effectively prepare future "clients" for successful business careers. Good corporate lawyers help their clients manage risk and build and maintain constructive relationships with a vast variety of stakeholder constituents. By teaching future business leaders, I discovered a greater amount of satisfaction in preparing them from the outset to be critical thinkers and strategists.

What is the one book you think everyone should read?

"Getting to Yes: Negotiating Agreement Without Giving In" by Fisher/Ury

Tell us something interesting about yourself that your students might not know about you.

My true aspiration is to become a full-time novelist. I've begun that journey with my first novel, "A Place With Dragons," which is the first in a seven-part series.
