I grew up about one hour from Indianapolis, in Spencer, Indiana (near Bloomington), and graduated Owen Valley High School in 1986. After high school, I grew my hair long and sang in a rock band for a few years. I later attended Indiana University in Bloomington and recieved a B.S. in Business. After working in computer networking and later at Roche Diagnostics in technical support, I attended law school at the Robert H. McKinney School of Law - Indianapolis.
