    Life Beyond the Law

    I try to stay as active, both physically and mentally, as possible.  I play rugby and hockey and go to the gym regularly.  I enjoy working with my hands and tinkering with machines, so my hobbies include repairing watches and motorcycles.  When I do slow down, I like to explore Philadelphia’s many fantastic restaurants.
