I’m an attorney licensed in the state of Minnesota for over 20 years, working on utility regulatory issues with clients directly affected by utility infrastructure and policy. This work includes a full range of approaches, from intervention and participation in administrative proceedings, legal forays in Minnesota District, Appellate and the Supreme Courts, legislative advocacy, and media and publicity.
Before law, I had too many years of “character building experiences” ranging from ~12 years of over-the-road trucking (paid off in Northland Ins Co v Bennett, new law in Minnesota implying a lease to extend insurance coverage) mixed with some dispatch and safety management; grill cook at a collective cafe; concert and on-air sound tech and radio programmer; hack saxophone player in multiple horn sections; hospital station clerk; and credit and collections. It’s been a long strange trip, but that range of experience provided a broad range of knowledge that pays off
This site is my outlet and archive of projects I’ve worked on, and issues that I care about personally and professionally. Any errors are mine, and mine alone — if you see something that needs correcting, do let me know!
